My group is interested in applying advanced bio-fabrication technologies such as organ-on-chip and 3D bioprinting to develop novel engineered tissue models for disease modeling, drug discovery and damaged tissue repair.
Utilizing advanced biofabrication methods, we spatially control the mechanobiological microenvironment across multiple length scales to improve the physiological relevancy and clinical utility of engineered tissues.
We use these novel tools to study fibrosis-related diseases such as the cause and therapy of idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis and the effect of fibrotic tumor microenvironment on cancer immunotherapy.
