Carolyn Schutt Ibsen Ph.D.

Energy-Responsive Biomaterials Group
Dr. Carolyn Ibsen's research group is focused on developing energy-responsive biomaterial platforms for tumor modeling and regenerative medicine. We have a particular interest in stimuli-responsive materials that can be controlled remotely and noninvasively. Our work lies at the intersection of nanomaterials design, tissue engineering, gene/drug delivery and ultrasound physics.

Research Interest Areas:
-Stimuli-responsive organoids for early-stage tumor modeling and biomarker discovery
-Tissue-engineered hydrogel scaffolds for regenerative medicine therapies
-Stimuli-responsive nanomaterials for drug and gene delivery
-3-D Bioprinting of complex tissue constructs

Positions Available
We are always on the lookout for talented students and postdocs to join our team! Please email ibsenc@ohsu.edu to inquire.

Biography
Dr. Ibsen joined OHSU in 2018 after completing a Whitaker International Postdoctoral Fellowship at Imperial College London, working with biomaterials for engineered tissue and regenerative medicine in the group of Molly Stevens. She holds a Ph.D. in Bioengineering from the University of California, San Diego.  Her graduate work focused on the development of energy-responsive nanomaterials for cancer therapy and diagnostics.
