Todd Hoare is an Associate Professor in the Department of Chemical Engineering and a Tier 2 Canada Research Chair in Engineered Smart Materials. Todd’s interdisciplinary work in chemistry and engineering allows him to be innovative in the development of smart materials. His work with hydrogel nanofibers can be used to grow on-demand tissue patches, and has helped to improve plant immunity to diseases, which will ultimately be used to help people living with chronic conditions, specifically older adults whose immune systems have deteriorated due to comorbidities. Todd’s collaborative research efforts have also delivered innovations in a range of drugs including injectables that target cancers.
