Biography

Canavan has been a professor at the University of New Mexico since 2005. Her research integrates techniques developed in biology, polymer chemistry, and surface science to study bioengineering at the cell/surface and protein/surface level. Understanding gained from this fundamental research allows for the directed design of novel engineered cellular constructs and the development of bioactive polymers.
