Clinical and Research Background
Our research seeks to hijack and rewire aspects of nature’s developmental programs to control the processes by which cells assemble to form human systems. To do this, we use diverse tools taken from stem cell biology, tissue engineering, synthetic biology, micro/nanofabrication, and bioprinting. We are currently integrating these technologies to build human platforms for understanding and treating infectious disease, interrogating biological programming in human development, and controlling artificial tissue for organ regeneration in animal model systems. We ultimately seek to translate our work into new therapies for patients with heart and liver disease.
