The focus of research at Magness Lab is the genetic mechanisms that control intestinal and colonic stem cell maintenance and differentiation. The Lab uses the highly regenerative gut epithelium as a model system to understand how Sox-transcription factors control cell-fate … Read more
The BioTherapeutics Laboratory is led by Dr. Ke Cheng. Our studies include regenerative medicine approaches by using patient-derived stem cells, biomaterials and targeted nanoparticles. For stem cell research, we are interested in isolating patient-specific and organ-specific adult stem cells and … Read more
The Advanced Wound Healing lab is led by Dr. Ashley C. Brown. Our group’s research centers on developing novel microgel-based materials for a variety of biomedical applications including augmentation of hemostasis, enhanced wound healing, evaluation and modulation of cellular mechanotransduction, … Read more
Research focuses on replacing, engineering, or regenerating tissues and/or organs. Encompasses functional tissue engineering and the use of molecular biology, bioreactors, cytomechanics, engineering scaffolds, plasma-treated surfaces, biotextiles, biomimetics, stem cells, and mechanobiology to produce novel biomaterials and engineer synthetic living tissues.
