Craig Duvall

Duvall conducts research on advanced drug delivery systems designed for regenerative medicine applications including enhancing the performance of stem cell therapies for use in tissue engineering, stimulating healing of non-healing skin wounds, improving long-term performance of vascular bypass grafts, and reducing tissue destruction in degenerative diseases such as osteoarthritis.

His research on projects in these areas sponsored by the American Heart Association, the National Institutes of Health, the Department of Defense, and the National Science Foundation.

Duvall’s achievements include a Presidential Early Career Award for Scientists and Engineers, the highest honor bestowed by the U.S. government on outstanding scientists and engineers early in their research careers; a National Science Foundation Faculty Early Career Development grant, and a Society for Biomaterials 2015 Young Investigator Award. Last week, he was named to Vanderbilt’s 2018 class of Chancellor Faculty Fellows.

Duvall joined the School of Engineering in January 2010. He earned a Ph.D. in biomedical engineering in 2007 at the Georgia Institute of Technology.
