Chemical Engineering Welcomes Two New Faculty Members:

Lindsay Fitzpatrick

Dr. Fitzpatrick graduated with a B.Eng. in Chemical Engineering and Biosciences from McMaster University in 2006, where she studied biomaterial surface modification and protein adhesion in Dr. Heather Sheardown’s lab. She then completed her Ph.D. under the supervision of Dr. Michael Sefton at the University of Toronto in 2012. Her doctoral research investigated the molecular mechanisms of the angiogenic response to poly(mehtyacryclic acid -co- methylmethacrylate) beads in wound healing models. She also studied oxygen transport within modular tissue engineering microtissues. 


Laura Wells

Dr. Wells graduated with a B.Sc.(Eng) in Engineering Chemistry from Queen’s University in 2003, where she worked under the supervision of Dr. Brian Amsden in biomedical engineering. She completed her Master’s of Applied Science and Ph.D. degrees in 2005 and 2010 respectively under the supervision of Dr. Heather Sheardown at McMaster University. Her doctoral work focused on smart drug delivery for ophthalmic applications. Dr. Wells completed a postdoctoral fellowship under the supervision of Dr. Michael Sefton at the University of Toronto, where she investigated the design of therapeutic polymers to improve device integration and promote vascular healing responses. She held a post-doctoral fellowship from the Canada Institutes of Health Research (CIHR) and an NSERC postgraduate scholarship for her doctoral studies.
