William Murphy, PhD
Associate Professor
Department of ....
University of Wisconsin-Madison


Biography
William L. Murphy is currently Harvey D. Spangler Professor of Biomedical Engineering and Co-Director of the Stem Cell and Regenerative Medicine Center at the University of Wisconsin. He received his B.A. in Physics from Illinois Wesleyan University in 1998, Ph.D. in Biomedical Engineering from the University of Michigan in 2002, and was a postdoctoral fellow in Chemistry at the University of Chicago from 2002-2004. His research interests focus on designing and synthesizing “bioinspired” materials, which actively regulate stem cell behavior. Murphy’s research group is using new materials to address a variety of regenerative medicine challenges, including stem cell differentiation, tissue regeneration, and controlled drug delivery. He has published more than 90 manuscripts and book chapters, filed over 20 patents, and received awards that include the National Science Foundation Career Award and the Wisconsin Vilas Associate Award. He serves on numerous industrial and academic advisory boards.
