Dr. Alex Meltzer
Tissue Engineering and Biopolymers
A room full of polymer scientists, electrical and chemical engineers isn’t always enough. You just must have someone that knows cell growth. I know cell growth. With a PhD in biochemistry and molecular biology, a dissertation on cancer cells, experience with a drug discovery company and a co-founder of a tissue banking company, I am ready to talk biology with you. I’ll also hold my own in the conversation about ways to electrospin biopolymers as I converted a Naval Research Laboratory patent into our first fully commercial product – BioPapers – that are used for 3D printing of cells and cell culture.
