Welcome to the Regenerative Biology Group homepage

Our aim is to discover and apply emerging knowledge at the interface of stem cell biology and materials science to design cell environments that can regenerate tissue following disease or trauma. We seek new approaches to manipulate cells and their environments and focus on the following research thrust areas:


Applied Progenitor & Stem Cell Biology​​

Protein Engineering & Biological Interface Design​​

Biomaterials Engineering

Organ and Tissue Banking
