The overall goal of BMSCE laboratory is combine engineering principles and basic science with developmental biology to understand mechanisms of tissue regeneration in novel biomaterial systems.

Biomaterial scaffold may provide a vehicle to differentiate stem cells by controlled exposure to proteins, adhesion peptides, and growth factors in a three-dimensional matrix.

Our laboratory is currently working toward the fabrication of bio-synthetic microenvironments conducive to stem cell differentiation by manipulating scaffold properties and incorporating the desired biological signals.
