We are conducting state-of-the-art research using stem cells, organoids, biomaterials, and biotechnologies to grow artificial living tissues and develop new regenerative therapies. This research covers a diverse range of tissues (e.g., cartilage, bone, muscle, heart, brain) and encompasses interdisciplinary methods from engineering, chemistry, and biology. Through international collaboration and partnerships with local clinicians, we are focused on producing translational grafts for clinical application as well as advanced biological models that can be used to understand development, disease, and drug response.
Tissue Engineering and Regenerative Medicine
Regenerative medicine is a broad science using synergistic combinations of cells, biomaterials, and biomolecules to repair, replace, and rejuvenate damaged tissues (figure from JPK Armstrong et al. “A Blueprint for Translational Regenerative Medicine” Science Translational Medicine 2020).
