Laboratory for Multiscale Bioengineering and Mechanobiology

Our research applies and integrates fundamental engineering principles, such as manufacturing, biomechanics, materials science, and micro/nanoengineering, to understand and harness the mechanobiology of stem cells for modeling currently incurable human diseases and for applications in regenerative medicine. Current research interests include:

  • Stem cell bioengineering
  • System mechanobiology
  • Microengineering
  • Active biomaterials
  • Lab-on-chip
  • Tissue biomechanics
