In our lab, we investigate a variety of biomedical problems on multiple levels (molecular, cellular, tissue, and whole animal). Our current efforts involve developing: 1) a new technique using encapsulated mesenchymal stem cells to treat spinal cord injury; 2) methodology for defatting cells and organs and regenerating spent organs; 3) new technologies for healing chronic wounds; 4) microfabricated brain-on-a-chip systems for studying traumatic brain injury; 5) allergy-on-a-chip microsystems for replacing animal testing; and 6) an automated robotic venipuncture device.
