The mission of this laboratory is to develop novel strategies for tissue regeneration, and to establish innovative organ-on-a-chip devices for disease diagnosis and drug screening. We utilize interdisciplinary approaches including micro-/nanofabrication, stem cells, tissue engineering, biomaterial, cell/tissue biomechanics, and bioimaging.

 

The current research projects focus on (a) Cell-based microdevices for development and disease, focusing on birth abnormalities in left-right asymmetry and (b) cartilage tissue engineering, with the emphasis of stem cells for tissue repair.
