John Hundley Slater's Biography



John Hundley Slater, Assistant Professor of Biomedical Engineering, University of Delaware

Dr. Slater received a Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering from the University of North Carolina at Charlotte in 2001, graduating Magna Cum Laude, where he was a recipient of the Danielson Endowment Scholarship as well as the James S. Jones Memorial Scholarship. He received a PhD in Biomedical Engineering with a Graduate Portfolio Degree in Nanoscience and Nanotechnology from the University of Texas at Austin in 2008 where he was a National Science Foundation Graduate Research Fellow, Department of Biomedical Engineering Tom Collins Fellow, and College of Engineering Thrust Fellow. He was a National Institutes of Health Nanobiology Postdoctoral Training Fellow and a Howard Hughes Medical Institute Postdoctoral Training Fellow in Bioengineering at Rice University until 2012 and a Research Scientist in Biomedical Engineering at Duke University until 2013. He is currently an Assistant Professor of Biomedical Engineering at the University of Delaware and an Affiliated Faculty in the Department of Materials Science and Engineering and the Delaware Biotechnology Institute. His research interests include biomimetic materials, mechanobiology, microenvironmental control over cell fate, in vitro microfluidic models, and cell and tissue engineering.

We demonstrate fabrication of three-dimensional, biomimetic microfluidic networks embedded in hydrogels by combining laser-based hydrogel degradation with image-guided laser control. Generation of high-density, capillary-like microfluidic networks that recapitulate the architecture of in vivo microvasculature as well as the ability to induce internetwork transport between two independent microfluidic systems is presented. Recapitulating in vivo-like transport using biomimetic microfluidic networks may prove advantageous in fabricating advanced in vitro tissue models.
