Board of Governors Professor

Kohn’s key expertise is in polymer chemistry, the design of polymeric biomaterials and the creation of tissue scaffolds. His lab is working on the development of innovative scaffolds that can create interfaces between different tissues such as the osteochondral interface. An extensive set of state-of-the-art 3D printers is one of the current training highlights in Kohn’s lab, enabling projects relating to the design and manufacture of hybrid scaffolds that contain synthetic components in combination with extracellular matrix components, printed cell assemblies, and tissue manufacturing.
