Bio: Dr. Quinn received his B.S. degree in Biomedical Engineering from the University of Wisconsin-Madison in 2004. He earned his Ph.D in Bioengineering in 2010 from the University of Pennsylvania under the mentorship of Dr. Beth Winkelstein. He then joined the Department of Biomedical Engineering at Tufts University as postdoctoral scholar in Dr. Irene Georgakoudi's group. In 2011, he was awarded a Ruth L. Kirschstein National Research Service Award for Individual Postdoctoral Fellowship from the NIH to develop non-invasive optical biomarkers for quantifying engineered tissue development. In 2014, he received an NIH Pathway to Independence Award (K99/R00) to fund research focused on the diagnosis and characterization of chronic wounds through label-free multi-photon microscopy. In September 2015, he joined the Department of Biomedical Engineering at the University of Arkansas, where his lab is exploring the diagnostic potential of label-free optical biomarkers in a variety of wound healing and skin applications.
