Our research encompasses molecular-to-systems level analysis, design and synthesis of biomaterials, scaffolds, devices and micro-organs for a range of applications in regenerative medicine, tissue engineering, and in vitro drug development.  A central theme is connecting the experimental systems to systems biology measurements.  Most projects are highly interdisciplinary and translational, involving basic scientists, clinicians, and engineers, often with industry partners, to solve important problems in medicine and biology. The lab is affiliated with the Center for Gynepathology Research (CGR), Center for Environmental Health Sciences (CEHS), the Center for Emergent Behaviors of Integrated Cellular Systems (EBICS), and the Koch Institute for Integrative Cancer Research.
