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 ...
Our biomaterial-free 3D bioprinted cardiac patches got featured at http://medicalphysicsweb.org/cws/article/research/69520. A shoutout to the author of the article, Geoffrey Potjewyd, for writing about our work. We appreciate it!

Journal Tissue Engineering Abstract There remains a need for large animal models to evaluate tissue engineered vascular grafts (TEVGs) under arterial pressure to provide preclinical data for future potential human clinical trials. We present a comprehensive method for the interrogation of TEVGs, using an ovine bilateral arteriovenous shunt implantation model. Our results demonstrate that this ...
