The mission of our lab is to fill the gap between clinical practice and basic science through translational research. Our key research area is cardiovascular tissue engineering using 3D printing/ bioprinting technology. First, we aim to use innovative and novel tissue engineering approaches to regenerate the heart using 3D cardiac engineered tissues. The second focus of our lab is patient-specific vascular tissue engineering using 3D printing technology. Our ultimate goal is to create new history to apply these basic researches into clinical fields to improve patient’s quality of life.
Shanxiu graduates our lab and will move to master course at Biomedical Engineering in University of California, Davis. She worked very hard and diligently and contributed to create new breakthrough of 3D tissue creation. Best wishes for new endeavor!
One of lab Alumni, Joseph Boktor got an acceptance to the MD/PhD program!
His hard work opened a new door! Best wishes for your next step, Joe!
Chin Siang’s book chapter is online now. He wrote many papers when he worked in the lab!

Hiro’s paper “Corrugated nanofiber tissue-engineered vascular graft to prevent kinking for arteriovenous shunts in an ovine model,” has been accepted for publication in the Journal of Vascular Surgery Vascular Science!
Andrew matched into the general surgery resident program!
Enoch matched into the transition to the categorical general surgery resident program!
They both came from abroad with dreams to become a surgeon in the United States! The first step to that journey actually started in our lab! It was a blessing to see them grow and see them eventually reach to the beginning of their dreams!
