Mauney comes to UCI from Harvard Medical School, where he conducted research at the intersection of tissue engineering and biomaterials for urinary and gastrointestinal tract repair. He has a dual appointment in urology and biomedical engineering. Mauney received his bachelor’s degree in chemical engineering and doctorate in biotechnology engineering from Tufts University. He served as a staff scientist in the Department of Urology at Boston Children’s Hospital and an associate professor of surgery at Harvard Medical School. Mauney’s laboratory focuses on the development of “off-the-shelf” silk fibroin biomaterials for the repair of visceral hollow organs. He also specializes in the creation of novel large-animal models of urinary tract and gastrointestinal disease for preclinical medical device testing. He has been continuously funded by the NIH since 2011.
