Julianne L. Holloway is currently an assistant professor in chemical engineering at Arizona State University, where she began in 2016. Holloway received her doctorate in chemical engineering at Drexel University in 2012. Her postdoctoral research was performed with Professor Jason Burdick in the Bioengineering Department at the University of Pennsylvania. Through her research on engineering hydrogels for synergistic biomolecule delivery, she was awarded the National Institutes 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.

Holloways research has been recognized through several awards, including: University of Washingtons 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). Holloway is also committed to service and teaching, where she was serves on the editorial board of Regenerative Biomaterials, as an associate scientific advisor for Science Translational Medicine, and as the chair for the Society for Biomaterials Young Scientists Group.
