Our lab is primarily interested in the development of biologically active materials
and their use and behavior in cardiovascular tissue engineering. It is important to
understand molecular and cellular mechanisms during processes such as vasculogenesis
as well as the structure of both natural and synthetic polymers and their effect on
living tissues. With this fundamental knowledge base, biomaterials can be designed
to mimic naturally occurring structures found in the supporting extracellular matrix.
