Scott T Retterer
Senior Research Staff Scientist
Scott Retterer is a senior staff scientist in the Biosciences and Center for Nanoscale Materials Sciences Divisions at Oak Ridge National Laboratory. His work focuses on the development of material interfaces that can be used to shape soft materials and biological systems with an emphasis on understanding the effects of nanoscale structure, molecular transport, and chemical patterning on material formation and biological processes. With continued work in refining methods for integrating nanostructures into functional arrays and microfluidic systems, current research focuses on understanding how these structures can be used to control the physical and chemical environment within microfluidic platforms to replicate complex natural environments in tractable experimental systems. Scott received his Ph.D. in biomedical engineering from Cornell University in 2005. He is a faculty member in the Bredesen Center for Interdisciplinary Research at the University of Tennessee.
