UW Bioengineering professor Dr. Buddy Ratner has developed a biomaterial that resists the body’s natural attack response to foreign objects. This material is made with a positively and negatively charged polymer, which acts to deflect proteins from sticking to its surface. This material has the potential to allow medical devices to function better and improve patient outcomes.
