Research Interests

Collagen-Based Vascular Networks for Tissue Engineering

One of the primary objectives of tissue engineering is the in vitro generation of synthetic tissues and organs. However an unsolved problem exists concerning vascular network generation, preventing their formation. In this project, we use cellularized collagen hydrogels with various channel-forming fabrication techniques to create vascularized tissue, working towards solutions to this interdisciplinary problem.
