ABOUT

We tackle basic science questions and applied research problems with a focus on inter-relationships between the structure and function of tissues and biomaterials.

Taking a multidisciplinary approach, we draw on knowledge and techniques from engineering, physics, chemistry, biology, and medicine to improve understanding of tissue development, normal function, aging, injury, and repair. 

RECENT PUBLICATIONS

Research work by trainees is published in high impact journals. Here are some recent examples.
