  • Daniel Abebayehu

    Assistant Professor
    Dan Abebayehu, PhD, studies fibrosis and how different types of fibroblasts could promote tissue regeneration, instead of scar formation. Dr. Abebayehu's research has been supported by an NIH Mosaic Pathway to Independence Award (K99/R00) which provides promising postdoctoral…
  • J. Milton Adams

    Professor Emeritus
    J. Milton Adams

    Adams earned his Ph.D. in biomedical engineering from UVA in 1976 and returned to join the faculty in 1978. His “Physiology” class in the Department of Biomedical Engineering has a reputation of being one of the best courses in the Engineering School. In addition, he still accepts a full load of academic advisees annually.
