We develop biomaterials to detect and treat disease.
Current projects: tissue engineering for pediatric cardiovascular disease; theranostics for post-surgical adhesions; biomaterials for women's health
We recently published a study testing drug carriers (liposomes) and ultrasound on blood vessels-on-a-chip. This was a collaboration with Nooli Jeon's group at Seoul National University and others where we tested ultrasound-assisted drug delivery in a systematic way.
Our recent work on biased cell migration on gradient-stiffness substrates was published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences and highlighted as the Top Story in Extracellular Matrix News.
