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.
