About Gary Thompson

My overall research interests are in targeted stimulation of biological systems such as cells and tissues. I seek to engineer, predict and control active biological processes through directed input of physical energy. Current efforts focus on the effects of localized, pulsed electric fields on biomembranes, cytoskeleton structure, and cellular signaling. I have two major research projects now underway: (1) alteration of peripheral nerve signaling; and (2) decellularization of tissues for medical applications.

I also am interested in development of in vitro models for study of biological systems, and generally in the advancement of optical and mechanical characterization methods for soft matter and nanomaterials.
