Tissue responsive multifunctional nanomaterials for theranostics

The research in the laboratory for tissue-responsive nanomaterials for biomedical applications is dedicated to leveraging materials science and engineering, imaging and basic science to improve human health.

We develop smart material platforms that can sense the environment, enhance tissue repair and report on tissue state. Tissue- and application-specific materials are developed to provide mechanical support, release therapeutic molecules or modify endogenous cells towards a specific therapeutic phenotype.

Our main focus is to rationally design personalized materials and medical devices to combat cancer, to improve tissue regeneration in orthopedic applications and to overcome gastrointestinal diseases. With the goal to propel technologies from bench to bedside, we are studying tissue:biomaterial interactions in light of clinically-relevant conditions, as manifested by disease.
