Donald Haynie

President and CEO BioLaminex, Inc., Head, Nanomedicine and Bionanotechnology Laboratory

University of South Florida

The Haynie laboratory applies principles of physics and other subjects to design, fabricate and characterize nanostructured, polymer-based biomaterials. Materials of particular interest are nanocoatings for cell and tissue culture, nanocoatings for medical implant devices, and nanostructures for combating cancer. Spectroscopic, acoustic and microscopic methods are used for physical and chemical characterization. Biological characterization is done by cell culture and other methods.

Don Haynie has a PhD is in biophysics from Johns Hopkins University, where he was an NIH pre-doctoral fellow. He was then an NSF post-doctoral research fellow at Oxford University, where he worked with Christopher Dobson, FRS, then Deputy Director of Oxford Centre for Molecular Sciences and currently Professor of Chemistry and Master of St John’s College, Cambridge University. He has held faculty positions in departments of biomolecular sciences, biomedical engineering and physics, and adjunct faculty positions in departments of chemistry and surgery. He was a faculty affiliate of the Institute for Micromanufacturing at Louisiana Tech, where he was principal investigator of a $2.2 million multi-university research consortium in biotechnology. His research has been sponsored by AFOSR, NSF, NIH, NASA, private companies and other sources. He has about 90 peer-reviewed research articles, reviews and conference abstracts to his credit. He is founder of two US biotechnology companies, Artificial Cell Technologies, Inc. (New Haven, CT) and BioLaminex, Inc. (Tampa, FL), and an inventor on 16 issued and licensed US patents. He is author of the best-selling textbook, Biological Thermodynamics, published by Cambridge University Press and in the second edition since 2008. The PI joined the Department of Physics at USF in 2009. He is a member of the Center for Integrated Functional Materials and an associate member of the Nanotechnology Research and Education Center at USF. He was admitted to the USF Academy of Inventors in 2009 and the National Academy of Inventors in 2010. He received USF’s Innovator of the Year Award in 2010.
