Chronic diabetic ulcers are the leading cause of non-traumatic limb amputations in the US and are a significant health care burden. To improve healing of chronic diabetic wounds, we created a unique microenvironment using a novel hydrogel (based on self-assembling peptide nanofibers) that mimics the native matrix in the wound and promotes healing. To activate unresponsive, diseased cells within the chronic wound, we have developed an electric field-based technology that uses high-frequency wireless electric fields stimulation to activate capillary cells and enhance blood vessel formation in the wound, which results in much faster healing. This technology has been successfully tested in the mouse and pig models, and is under active translational development in collaboration with UCRI and the UC Office for Entrepreneurial Affairs and Technology Commercialization.

Kevin Haworth received a B.S. degree in physics from Truman State University in 2003 and M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in applied physics from the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, MI, in 2006 and 2009, respectively.  Following his graduate studies he performed a postdoctoral fellowship at the University of Cincinnati.  As a fellow, he received a Ruth L Kirschstein National Research Service Award (F32) from the NIH National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute to support his research. He is now an Assistant Professor in the Division of Cardiovascular Health and Disease within the Department Internal Medicine, College of Medicine at the University of Cincinnati.  He also maintains a secondary faculty appointment within the Department of Pediatrics and the Department of Biomedical Engineering, College of Engineering and Applied Science at the University of Cincinnati. Dr. Haworth teaches in both the undergraduate and graduate Biomedical Engineering program and is Director of Data and Analytics for the College of Medicine’s Medical Sciences Baccalaureate Program.  Dr. Haworth is a member of the IEEE, the International Society for Therapeutic Ultrasound (ISTU), the Acoustical Society of America (ASA), and the American Institute of Ultrasound in Medicine (AIUM).  He serves on the Bioeffects Committee for the AIUM and on the Biomedical Acoustic Technical Committee and Public Relations Committee for the ASA. He is a former Goldwater Scholar and is involved with the Barry M. Goldwater Scholarship and Excellence in Education Program at both the local and national level. 

Kevin Haworth’s research interests broadly include biomedical ultrasound imaging and therapy.  In particular, he is currently directing and conducting research in medical ultrasound including the use of bubbles for diagnostic and therapeutic applications. His work includes studies of cavitation imaging and acoustic droplet vaporization for gas scavenging and imaging. These studies have been funded through the National Institutes of Health, the American Heart Association, and institutional awards. Ongoing studies of passive cavitation imaging are being pursued to develop image-guidance for cavitation-based therapies such as drug delivery and histotripsy.  Additional studies are being performed to modify the imaging algorithm for improved image quality. Dr. Haworth is the principal investigator of an NIH-NHLBI K25 grant entitled "Ultrasound-mediated oxygen scavenging for inhibition of reperfusion injury.” While new therapies to restore blood flow during myocardial infarction (i.e., a heart attack) can be life-saving, up to half of the volume of heart tissue at risk during a heart attack dies, paradoxically, due to the return of blood flow. The previously oxygen-started heart muscle responds to the influx of oxygen by creating free radicals that damage the patient’s heart cells, so-called reperfusion injury.  This project uses a novel, ultrasound-mediated technique to sequester oxygen from the blood to limit free radical formation and reduce reperfusion injury.

The ultimate goal of our research project is to provide a better understanding of diseases which cause blindness, so that we can develop better treatment. We study the structure-function relationships of eye-specific genes which are vital for the maintenance of vision. Two research projects which are mutually supportive are: 1). Regulation of Cornea-specific K12 keratin gene expression, and 2). Corneal wound-healing. K12 keratin, exclusively expressed by corneal epithelial cells, is vital for normal corneal functions, and also plays an important role in corneal wound-healing. We are using the transgenic approach to examine the role of cytokines, receptors and/or other gene products in corneal wound-healing and development.

Research in the Pixley lab has moved from a past emphasis on the neurogenesis and neuropharmacology of the olfactory system into more applied neural tissue repair work. Our current focus is on using novel biomaterials to promote neural tissue repair and regeneration. One of the most promising biomaterials is magnesium, primarily in metal form. Magnesium metal has properties that have increasingly attracted attention in recent years for use as a bioresorbable biomedical implant material. The most advanced uses are currently as bone fixation devices and as a cardiovascular stent material. Magnesium metal is strong initially, then very safely resorbs into the body. We are identifying novel ways to use magnesium metal to improve recovery of nervous tissues from injury damage, focusing first on repairing injury cuts in peripheral nerves in rats. We are also exploring the use of ionic magnesium for nervous tissue repair. Magnesium in ionic form is known to be neuroprotective and aids recovery of brain tissues after traumatic injury or stroke. Magnesium ions reduce secondary neuronal damage that occurs after the initial injury and reduce vasospasm that occurs in the brain after damage and is also damagine. Our collaborative group includes surgeons, neurobiologists, neuropathologists, and engineers from many categories. We are currently funded by an NSF grant that supports an Engineering Research Center dedicated to Revolutionizing Metallic Biomaterials (http://erc.ncat.edu/).  As a second focus, the lab is exploring the use of carbon nanotube (CNT) materials for nervous tissue repair. Expert engineering groups at UC produce novel forms of CNT materials, which are linear biomaterials with promise for promoting neuronal outgrowth and repair. Our initial work shows that neuronal stem cells migrate readily along CNT thread and complete differentiation. We are also using CNT materials to guide nervous tissue repair.
