Biomaterials

 

Biomaterials is a broad research area in our lab and our efforts lie at the interface of tissue engineering, microfluidics, and stem cell bioengineering. This includes synthesis and characterization of new biomaterials, the use of photo-crosslinkable biomaterials for patterning the surfaces, understanding cell-biomaterials interaction using high throughput screening and development of micro-/nanoparticles for controlled release. Currently, we have synthesized sugar-based photo-crosslinkable synthetic and natural polymers for tissue engineering applications. These polymers are being characterized for their mechanical properties, cytotoxicity, and ability to pattern themselves into various shapes and sizes. Natural and synthetic materials used in the lab include alginate, hyaluronic acid, collagen, polycaprolactone and polyglycerol sebacate for scaffold-based tissue
