Scott T Retterer
Distinguished Research Staff Scientist
As a distinguished staff scientist at Oak Ridge National Laboratory, working across the Center for Nanophase Materials Sciences and Biosciences Divisions, Dr. Retterer’s work focuses on the development of materials and fluidic interfaces to biological systems with an emphasis on understanding the effects of nanoscale structure, molecular transport, and spatial organization on biological processes. Dr. Retterer is also Section Head for the Nanomaterial Synthesis and Nanofabrication section at the Center for Nanophase Materials Sciences. Over the past decade Dr. Retterer has refined methods for integrating nanostructures, microfluidics and nanofluidics into functional assays and microfluidic culture systems. His research focusses on understanding how these platforms can be used to control and measure the physical and chemical environment around complex biosystems and understand how changes in the local environment impacts their development.
