Main Research Interests
My research interests in tissue engineering and regenerative medicine include: 1.the design and development of bio-synthetic hybrid hydrogels for tissue engineering and regeneration; 2.the regulation of cellular morphogenesis via physical properties of the provisional extracellular matrix in three dimensional cultures; 3.the use of mechanical stimulation for optimizing the evelopment of tissue engineered constructs.
