Associate Faculty, Biodesign Center for Molecular Design and Biomimetics
Assistant Professor, School for Engineering of Matter, Transport & Energy
Julianne Holloway received her Ph.D. in Chemical Engineering at Drexel University in 2012 and completed her postdoctoral training at the University of Pennsylvania within the Bioengineering Department. Through her research on engineering hydrogels for synergistic biomolecule delivery, she was awarded the National Institute of Health Ruth L. Kirschstein National Research Service Award Postdoctoral (NIH NRSA F32) Fellowship. Her research interests are in the field of tissue engineering, with a focus on designing materials to mimic the native biochemical and biophysical cues of musculoskeletal tissues and developing a better understanding of the role dynamic biomechanics plays on cellular behavior. Julianne’s research has been recognized through several awards, including: University of Washington’s Distinguished Young Scholars Seminar Participant (2014); Most Promising Graduate Student Commencement Award (Drexel University, 2012); National Defense Science and Engineering Graduate Fellowship (2009-2012); and First Place in the Society for Advancement of Material and Process Engineering University Research Symposium (2010).
