The Darling Lab conducts research across diverse fields of cell mechanics, mesenchymal stem cell biology, and musculoskeletal tissue regeneration. Recent projects include identification and enrichment of stem cells by mechanophenotype using biochemical proxies or label-free microfluidic devices, measurement of microenvironmental forces in cell-dense tissues, and development of cell-mimicking materials for drug delivery.
