Pancreatic Cellular and Biomaterials Engineering
in super-resolution detail
Our lab’s mission is to employ an engineering approach to solve significant problems in health and biology.
Our primary focus is the pancreatic islets of Langerhans and their diseases with an emphasis on beta cell dysfunction and autoimmunity in type 1 diabetes.
We specialize in biomaterials technologies as the basis for regenerative strategies and to discover novel biological insights.
Bio-artificial matrices to program cellular responses
Engineering solutions to treat autoimmune disease like T1D
Understanding the underlying causes and triggers of autoimmunity in T1D
Pushing the boundaries of knowledge on the biology of islet endocrine cells
