3D-Printed Customized Biomaterial Implants and Their Translation into New Tissue Regenerative Therapies

Regenerative Medicine/Bioengineering/Stem Cell Biology

This year I intend to carry out in vitro studies to examine how novel biomaterial impacts stem cell behavior and determine the underlying cellular and molecular mechanisms responsible for the change.

The research partner may have the opportunity for hands-on wet lab experience including cell culture, DNA and RNA isolation, sub cloning, and PCR. The research partner will learn and practice lab skills, take part in hypothesis-driven experimental design, and have the opportunity to present work at lab and group meetings.
