Michael Taylor

In November 2016, Michael joined NESAC/BIO as a postdoctoral researcher to investigate design and analysis using ToF-SIMS and XPS of cellularized polymer scaffolds used for tissue regeneration.

Michael received his PhD in July 2016 from the University of Nottingham. His research at the Advanced Materials and Healthcare Technologies Division within the School of Pharmacy focused on exploring cell responsive interfaces using ToF-SIMS and XPS (Time-of-Flight Secondary Ion Mass Spectrometry, X-ray Photoelectron Spectroscopy) of synthetic polymer hydrogels. Under the supervision of Professor Morgan Alexander, Michael was involved in design of polymer-peptide conjugates for stem cell expansion, and the development of methods to chemically analyze frozen hydrated hydrogels.

In 2012, Michael joined the EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Regenerative Medicine, following on from obtaining his Masters Degree in Medicinal in Pharmaceutical Chemistry from Loughborough University. His undergraduate studies were focused on design and synthesis of anticancer precursor intercalation molecules.

He enjoys sailing, softball and socializing when not performing SIMS.
