Personal profile

Biography

Brian J. Meenan is Professor of Biomedical Materials and Associate Dean for Research & Impact within the Faculty of Computing, Engineering and the Built Environment.Brian’s research interests are directed toward the development of enhanced biomaterials for medical device applications with particular emphasis on the promoting interactions on the sub-micron to nanometre scale for applications in tissue engineering and regenerative medicine.Core projects include: studies of bioactive surfaces and reactions thereon; calcium phosphate thin film coatings; modification of polymer surfaces by atmospheric dielectric barrier discharge (DBD); control and medication of cell-surface interactions and the development of new methods for in situ biological process control in a bioreactor environment.Much recent emphasis has focused on the role of nanotechnology for enhancement of in vivo functionality of biomaterials and medical devices.He is also active in the area of health technology evaluation and its role in medical device design and service delivery. Brian’s research has led to a number of patented inventions and he is Co-Founder, Director and Chairman of Surf-Spec Ltd., an Ulster University spin-out company established in 2013 to commercialise IP in the area of atmospheric pressure plasma technology.Brian has BSc, MSc and PhD degrees from Ulster. He is a Fellow of the Royal Society of Chemistry and a Chartered Chemist (FRSC CChem).He is a founding member and Past President of the UK Society for Biomaterials (UKSB) and was awarded the 2010 President's Prize by the society in recognition of his contributions to the subject.
