GENETIC ENGINEERING OF HUMAN CELLS
We use genetic engineering and genome editing techniques to introduce fluorescent structural and functional sensors in human cell lines and human induced pluripotent stem cells.
We use both continuous and discrete modeling frameworks to study cell and tissue mechanobiology.
ENGINEERING OF CELL CULTURE PLATFORMS
We use micro/nano-fabrication and biological self-assembly to create high-throughput, high-content biomimetic platforms to study human development, health, and disease in-vitro.
