Research Projects

Our current focus currently is on cell self assembly in nonadhesive three dimensional environments. Through creative a novel device where we are able to allow cells to self assemble with only the force of gravity, we are able to observe the changes and dynamics of assembly as well as the role that tension and cell motility play in the process of self-assembly. Because of the flexibility in design, we have been able to create complex, 3D shapes assembled by cells.

Other current projects include understanding the molecular and cellular biology of the skin with an eye towards new therapeutic approaches to wound healing, the repair of the skin and the improvement in the performance of percutaneous medical devices.
