Dany J. Munoz-Pinto received his Ph.D. in Chemical Engineering from Texas A&M University, College Station in 2011. After completing his graduate studies in the field of Tissue Engineering (TE), Munoz-Pinto was appointed as a postdoctoral research associate in the Biomedical Engineering department at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in Troy, New York. Munoz-Pinto is continuing his scientific journey at Trinity University in San Antonio where he is delighted to have the opportunity to teach and disseminate his passion for biomaterials and TE research to a new generation of engineers and scientists.
