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.
Hiro left lab at the end of June and moved to Tronto to have further training for cardiac surgery. He joined when the lab was at Johns Hopkins, and then moved to Chicago together. He helped the lab very well and contributed a lot during tough time of lab transition and COVID restriction. Good luck for your next career!
Jason graduated our lab to work at the company in China. His contribution in one year was huge for our lab. Using his skill and knowledge that he learned during PhD training, he established tissue perfusion system. He brought our 3D cardiac tissue engineering research into next level. Good luck for your new exciting endeavor!
Shanxiu graduates our lab and will move to master course at Biomedical Engineering in University of California, Davis. She worked very hard and diligently and contributed to create new breakthrough of 3D tissue creation. Best wishes for new endeavor!
One of lab Alumni, Joseph Boktor got an acceptance to the MD/PhD program!
His hard work opened a new door! Best wishes for your next step, Joe!
Chin Siang’s book chapter is online now. He wrote many papers when he worked in the lab!
