Dr. Ratner received his Ph.D. from the Polytechnic Institute of Brooklyn. He’s an expert in specially designed materials (biomaterials) used in medical devices and implants, and his lab is working on bioengineering projects for tissues and organs such as heart muscle, the esophagus, bones and cartilage, and the cornea. Other projects include drug delivery to the eye and to the brain, micronutrient analysis for global health applications, and surface analysis for biomedical problems.
