Bioresponsive Materials Lab
Our lab seeks to develop biomaterial and therapeutic delivery systems that specifically respond to cell-generated signals. These next-generation, "smart" material systems enable us to engineer comprehensive regeneration of damaged or diseased tissues
Specific applications for these healing-responsive technologies include:
- Large-scale regeneration of orthopedic injuries or defects
- Healing of chronic skin wounds
- Elimination of dental implant infections
The Bioresponsive Materials Lab is located in room 549 in the Engineering Research Center (ERC) at the University of Cincinnati in Cincinnati, OH.

Faculty & Principal Investigator
John Robert Martin
Assistant Professor, CEAS - Biomedical Eng
Dr. Martin leads the Bioresponsive Materials Lab at UC, exploring “smart” biomaterial systems that leverage precise cell-generated signals (including reactive oxygen species and enzymatic activity) to activate biomaterial functionality and guide tissue regeneration. This interdisciplinary research integrates polymer science and materials engineering alongside pharmacology and biology to build new systems for regenerating orthopedic injuries in the clinic.
