Focus group: Angiogenesis

Department: Mechanical engineering

Hometown: Chicago, IL

Undergrad: Washington University in St. Louis


Research summary:

I use microfluidics to study the formation and maintenance of functional microvasculature. Our in-vitro assay enables us to precisely control the biochemical and mechanical properties affecting angio/vasculo-genesis and provides us the ability to visually moniter these processes in real- time. The applications of this study include tumor angiogenesis, cancer metastasis, and the engineering of artificial tissue and organs.
