Bio

Dr. Jennifer Bailey completed a B.S. in Chemical Engineering and a B.S. in Chemistry from Purdue University before continuing for a Ph.D. in Biomedical Engineering at Purdue University. Dr. Bailey’s graduate work was focused in tissue engineering. She worked on enhancing naturally derived three-dimensional, purified collagen matrices for both research and medical applications. Dr. Bailey utilized the natural occurring crosslinks within collagen to control mechanical properties separately from collagen concentration. Her work resulted in two publications and two patents.

Following graduate school, Dr. Bailey was an Assistant Professor at the University of Southern Indiana. At USI, she taught courses that introduced freshmen to engineering problems and computational tools. She moved to Urbana, IL and taught at the University of Illinois in Bioengineering. At U of I, Dr. Bailey focused on developing and teaching lab courses in Cell and Tissue Engineering and Quantitative Physiology as well as teaching a course in Biomechanics. She was active in STEM outreach and undergraduate advising. Dr. Bailey joined RIT in January 2014 as a Lecturer to develop and teach the lab courses in Biomedical Engineering.

Currently Teaching

BIME-499
0 Credits
One semester of paid work experience in biomedical engineering.
BIME-391
2 Credits
Laboratory experiments are conducted to explore and reinforce fundamental principles and concepts introduced in BIME-200 (Introduction to Musculoskeletal Biomechanics) and BIME-370 (Introduction to Biomaterial Science). The experimental procedures involve measuring results, analyzing and interpreting data and drawing objective conclusions. Emphasis is also placed on proper documentation and effective presentation of findings and results. Lab procedures involve manipulation and measurements of anatomical structures and samples as well as equipment and materials designed to simulate naturally occurring tissues and structures.
BIME-470
3 Credits
This hands-on course gives engineering students experience with different culture platforms and analysis techniques. Students will be given experiments relating to current literature and state of the art techniques in the area of Tissue Engineering. In a project-based course style, individual experiments require multiple weeks and students will be expected to maintain their own cultures.
