The mission of our lab is to fill the gap between clinical practice and basic science through translational research. Our key research areas are cardiovascular tissue engineering, 3D bioprinting and cardiac surgery. In terms of cardiac tissue engineering, coronary heart disease and heart failure are major diseases worldwide and current strategies focus on revascularization. However, if the ...
