The Fischell Department of Bioengineering (BioE) at the A. James Clark School of Engineering, University of Maryland, is pleased to welcome Professor Gregory Payne to its full-time faculty.

Payne, who received his Ph.D. from the University of Michigan in 1984, was formerly appointed to the University of Maryland Biotechnology Institute, where he was the director of the Center for Biosystems Research. His research interests include studying and applying biofabrication approaches in the construction of devices at the nanoscale, with a specific focus on biofabricating with stimuli-responsive biological polymers (especially polysaccharides) and enzymes (especially tyrosinase and transglutaminase). His research group's goals include creating the means to interface biology with electronics to produce devices that can diagnose disease at the point of care, detect pathogens at the market, and discover drugs in the lab; and exploring biocompatible approaches for personalized therapy, regenerative medicine, and less-invasive surgery.

Payne was previously a BioE affiliate faculty member and has been a long-time collaborator with a number of Clark School faculty, including BioE Professor and Chair William Bentley. He has served on the international advisory boards for numerous conferences on chitin and chitosan in Asia, Europe and North America, and is currently a member of the editorial board of the new journal Biofabrication.
