Pancreas Slices to Study Interactions Between Immune Cells and Islets with Ed Phelps PhD, UF
Ed Phelps received his B.S. in Biomedical Engineering and Ph.D. in Bioengineering from Georgia Tech. He went on to complete a postdoctoral fellowship in Bioengineering and Life Science at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (EPFL) in Lausanne, Switzerland. He joined the faculty in the J. Crayton Pruitt Family Department of Biomedical Engineering at the University of Florida in 2017. Phelps’s research is focused on biomaterials engineering as a strategy for regenerative therapies with emphasis in the area of type 1 diabetes. Phelps specializes in bio-synthetic cellular microenvironments to drive regenerative responses in vivo. Phelps also uses advanced light microscopy methods to investigate islet biology including the immunopathogenesis of diabetes and the role of neurotransmitters in regulating islet function. Phelps has received the 2018 nPOD Young Investigator Award and the 2021 UF Excellence Award for Assistant Professors. Research in the Phelps Lab is funded by JDRF, Diabetes Research Connection, Immunocore, Ltd., Human Islet Research Network (HIRN), and NIH/NIDDK.
