Research Expertise: Mechanobiology | Tissue Engineering

My laboratory is interested in the mechanobiology of development and regeneration. We study how mechanical cues influence morphogenesis, growth, adaptation, and repair, and how these physical stimuli can be used to engineer functional tissues. We are currently focused on the molecular mechanisms that control cellular mechanosensation during bone and blood vessel development and on creation of tissue engineering strategies that recapitulate these mechanisms for tissue regeneration.
