Griffin

Don Griffin is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Biomedical Engineering at the University of Virginia. After his training in Biomedical Engineering at the University of California, Los Angeles, Don joined the faculty at the University of Virginia in 2017.

His lab works on creating advanced biomaterials to support both fundamental science and translational approaches to tissue regeneration. They engineer biomaterials using a unique combination of microscale geometric control and novel chemistries.

Don's work also bridges the academic-industry relationship with recognition as an inventor on several pending patents. Additionally, Don is a co-founder of a growing biomaterials company, Tempo Therapeutics (located in San Diego).
