"Organ-on-a-chip," pluripotent stem cells, tissue engineering, microfluidics

Our research program is focused in three broad areas of transport phenomena, tissue engineering, and “organ-on-a-chip” technologies which include: 1) 3D microphysiological systems to simulate vascularized cardiac, tumor, and pancreatic tissue; 2) 3D microphysiological systems of the tumor microenvironment to probe mechanisms of metastasis including collective migration, intravasation, and extravasation; and 3) tissue engineered models of cardiac and vascular development.
