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 ...
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". From https://krieger.jhu.edu/research/undergraduate/dura/: The Dean’s Undergraduate Research Awards (DURA) are designed to promote independent research projects among our exceptional undergraduate students ...
Congratulations to Isaree Pitaktong for receiving the JHU Summer Training And Research Program (STAR) funding for Summer 2018 for her proposal "3D Printing Vascularized Cardiac Tissue Constructs"!
While we are all sad that Yang is leaving, we are grateful for all her contributions to our lab and happy that she is going back to China to start her lab. We wish her all the best!
Congratulations to Enoch Yeung for his poster presentation "Paracrine effect of cardiac patch augments angiogenesis and reduces scar tissue formation in vivo" winning the W. Leigh Thompson Excellence in Research Award at the Johns Hopkins Department of Medicine Research Retreat on 3/16/2018!
Great catching up and hope everyone had fun yesterday, looking at the fishes while enjoying New Orleans delicacies (12/9/2017)! Spot the sturgeon. The spelling of sturgeon is surgeon with an extra T.
While we are all sad that Takuma is leaving, we are grateful for all his contributions to our lab and happy that he is going back to clinical cardiac surgery. We wish him all the best!
