About Our Lab

The overall goal of our research is to develop novel biomaterials and engineering tools to modulate biology and impact medicine. We are particularly interested in developing injectable biomaterials to regenerate and rejuvenate human tissues by promoting stem cell differentiation, vascularization or immunomodulation. We are also passionate about engineering 3D in vitro disease models with in vivo-mimicking phenotype and drug responses. Such 3D models could accelerate discovering novel druggable targets and enable high-throughput drug screening with significantly reduced cost and time.
