James Wilford Caruana

P.hD. Student,



A P.hD. candidate at the University of Nottingham with a specialization in the additive manufacturing of bioengineering concepts. The aim of my P.hD. is to synthesize Novel High Performing Polymers for the Additive Manufacture of Bacterial Biofilm Resistant Surfaces.

Beyond that, I have completed my Bachelors in Chemistry with Material Science at the University of Malta with my final year project focusing on the effect of moisture on materials used in fused deposition modeling. Furthermore, I have a Master of Science in Bioengineering from the University of Nottingham in the U.K. with my final project focusing on the structural design and performance of microneedle devices for the mediated transdermal delivery of insulin.

Expertise Summary

Research interests include drug delivery, focusing on the implementation of biomedical and biomaterial science concepts to innovative applications.
