Brief Bio

Adam Gormley is an Assistant Professor of Biomedical Engineering at Rutgers University and an expert in nanobiomaterials. Prior to Rutgers, Adam was a Marie Skłodowska-Curie Research Fellow at the Karolinska Institutet (2016) and a Whitaker International Scholar at Imperial College London (2012-2015) in the laboratory of Professor Molly Stevens. He obtained his PhD in Bioengineering from the University of Utah in the laboratory of Professor Hamid Ghandehari (2012), and a BS in Mechanical Engineering from Lehigh University (2006). In January 2017, Adam started the Gormley Lab which seeks to use robotics guided by artificial intelligence for therapeutic and regenerative medicine applications.


The Gormley Lab for bioinspired nanobiomaterials aims to develop synthetic nanomaterials that interface with and manipulate proteins. We do this using robotics guided by artificial intelligence to autonomously synthesize polymeric materials that self-assemble into bioactive structures. Target applications include tissue engineering, drug delivery, nanomedicine, and biosensing.
