Associate Professor, Department of Physiology and Immunology & Director of Pre-Medicine Bridge Program

Dr. Peter R. Corridon is the Director of the Pre-Medicine Bridge Program, College of Arts and Sciences, and an Assistant Professor of Immunology and Physiology, College of Medicine and Health Sciences, Khalifa University. Dr. Corridon is a Medical Biophysicist, inventor, and entrepreneur whose expertise lies at the intersection of biomedicine, microvascular surgery, mathematics, physics, and engineering. He has published several papers in peer-reviewed international journals and conferences and received research grants with colleagues from Germany, and the United States, the United Kingdom, and the United Arab Emirates. His research focuses on microvascular remolding that supports tissue/organ regeneration and replacement and uses functional dynamic imaging to study these processes.
