Jaime E. Ramirez-Vick is Professor of Biomedical Engineering at the Wright State University. He has graduate and undergraduate degrees in Chemical Engineering from University of Puerto Rico – Mayaguez and Arizona State University, with postdoctoral training at the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory and the Cancer Center of the University of California – San Francisco.  He is co-founder of two microarray-based diagnostic companies in northern California, Iris Biotechnologies and Daedalus Biotechnologies. As technical lead of the companies he was awarded seventeen patents for their core technologies. Dr. Ramirez-Vick is member of the Editorial Board of ten peer-reviewed journals and is ad hoc editor of over sixty others. He also co-authored a textbook titled Bioseparation Process Science. He is an elected Fellow of the American Institute for Medical and Biological Engineering (AIMBE) for his leadership in the growth and technological advances of genetic diagnostics and contributions to academia-industry collaborations and bioengineering education.


These are courses I have taught. I usually teach two of these every semester.


  • BME 4440/6440 - Biomaterials
  • BME 7521 - Advanced Biotransport


  • BME 4421/6421 - Biotransport
  • BME 4450/6450- Tissue Engineering & Regenerative Medicine
  • BME 4460/6460- Nanomedicine Fundamentals

Research Interests: Nanomedicine in the development of multifunctional nanostructures for cancer detection and treatment, role of mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) in metastasis,  macrophage modulation during inflammation for ischemic and chronic wound tissue regeneration, regenerative medicine using MSCs in the development of biomimetic 3D scaffolds and the study of their differentiation using biophysical stimulation, and electrochemical nanostructured biosensors for protein and nucleic acid cancer biomarker detection.
