Dr. Cody Crosby received his Ph.D. in biomedical engineering from the University of Texas at Austin in 2020, his M.S.E from UT in 2017, and his B.S. in engineering from Harvey Mudd College in 2015. 

He specializes in cell-material interactions and is currently working to develop novel open-source bioprinters and improved biomaterial inks in his biofabrication laboratory on-campus. Through outside collaborations he also aims to build an improved in vitro model of the blood-brain barrier. Dr. Crosby teaches lower-level physics courses and upper-level engineering courses at SU. He currently advises undergraduates as part of the Pre-Med Advisory Committee. 

Cody is affiliated with the Biomedical Engineering Society (BMES), Society for Biomaterials (SFB), American Heart Association (AHA), and the International Society for Tissue Engineering and Regenerative Medicine (TERMIS).
