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 ...
Congraturations Cecillia to win "George Zuidema, MD Award for Meritorious Laboratory Research"!
We received "The Alfred Blalock Research Award" - 2nd year in a row from the department of Surgery, Johns Hopkins University!! Thank you for all lab member's hard work!!
Our lab work was listed with other top research groups of cardiac tissue engineering in PNAS (please see highlighted yellow part of the article entitled "The race to patch the human heart") http://www.pnas.org/content/115/26/6518 Thank you for all lab member's great work!
Congratulations Cecillia to win Talalay-Gott Award (announced on 6/23/18)!
Although Taku has already left, his work still leaves a legacy. He presented "Different Biodegradation Rates of Tissue-Engineered Vascular Grafts in Small and Large Animal Models".
Congratulations to Joe Boktor for winning the Dean’s Undergraduate Research Awards (DURA) ($4500) for his project proposal "Development of 3D Bio-printed Cardiac Tissue Patches using Human Induced Pluripotent Stem Cell Derived Cardiomyocytes and Biopolymer Hydrogels".
