Megan Jamiolkowski, PhD
Dr. Megan Jamiolkowski has been performing research in the area of hemocompatibility for seven years. She received her bachelorâ€™s degree in biomedical engineering from the Catholic University of America in 2010 and her PhD in bioengineering from the University of Pittsburgh in 2015. Her thesis work was on designing and examining microfluidic systems for evaluating the blood compatibility of biomaterials in clinically relevant flow conditions. While completing her graduate degree, Dr. Jamiolkowski also worked part time for three years as a clinical biomedical engineer in the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center Artificial Heart Program. After graduate school she performed a two year post-doctoral fellowship in the Center for Devices and Radiological Health at the FDA where she worked on designing, developing, and validating benchtop test systems for evaluating the thrombogenicity of blood contacting medical devices. In December of 2017, Dr. Jamiolkowski was promoted to a biomedical engineering staff fellow were she continues her research and provides consultation on thrombogenicity testing protocols and data to aid in the review of medical device submissions.
