The Muir Lab at UDel CBE
Hello! I'm Victoria Grace Muir, an incoming Assistant Professor in the University of Delaware Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering, starting Fall 2024. Currently, I am a Princeton University Presidential Postdoctoral Research Fellow in the Datta Lab. I obtained my PhD in 2022 as an NSF Graduate Research Fellow at the University of Pennsylvania in the Burdick Lab (now at CU Boulder). I received my B.ChE. in Chemical Engineering from the University of Delaware in 2018.
The Muir Lab will specialize in Engineering with Cells & Gels. At the intersection of biology and materials science, we will use chemical engineering principles to leverage the power of both living cells and gel-based materials. Our work will be inspired by grand challenges across biomedical and environmental applications, including tissue engineering, therapeutic delivery, biofabrication, and understanding cell behavior in naturally-relevant, spatially structured, and porous microenvironments.
