Therapeutic delivery and medical device materials are needed to prevent severe complications such as thrombosis, inflammation, and infection for cardiovascular, pulmonary, diabetes, and dental related patient care. Brisbois is intent on finding a better way. Her research focuses on the design and development of novel therapeutics and medical device materials using molecules that exist in our bodies to enhance compatibility and reduce complication.
