We design, fabricate, culture and analyze cell-based engineered vascular tissue. We explore the role of cells and ECM on tissue organization and material properties in health and disease, and apply engineering principles to design and prototype bioreactors that impart mechanical stimuli on engineered vascular tissues to simulate the hemodynamic environment of the human circulatory system.  I frequently rely on my experience as a research scientist in a biomaterials and drug delivery group at a medical device company to educate and excite students about the challenges of bringing cell and molecular therapies from research concept to commercialization and clinical use.
