Regenerative Engineering & Materials cluster at Biomedical Engineering Department

We integrate biological, chemical, and microfluidic technologies to robustly interrogate, characterize and manipulate cellular activities. We collaborate cross-disciplinary researchers to develop methods that solve pressing unmet research and medical needs. We enjoy making the design and hands-on development of microfluidic devices from scratch.

Our mission

We address major technological challenges in the functional analysis of biological systems and cell-biomaterial interactions for regenerative medicine using microfluidic systems.  Our experimental efforts efficiently produce multiparameter datasets from key biological models that pave the way for advanced analytical methods.

Key technologies

  • Biosensor-coupled microdevices for high-content screening 

  • Microfluidic systems to study cell-biomaterial interactions 

  • Small-scale soft materials to quantitatively study biological systems

  • Ogan-on-chip platforms for personalized medicine
