We are an interdisciplinary research group in the Department of Chemical Engineering and the Institute for Applied Life Sciences at the University of Massachusetts Amherst.  The mission of our laboratory is to deliver enabling and translational platform technologies that can advance basic biomedical research, solve various medical problems, and ultimately improve patient care.  We design and manufacture a broad range of materials to construct standardized, functional human tissue models, and apply multi-dimensional imaging modalities to quantitatively capture complex, dynamic biological processes.  The highly cross-disciplinary and collaborative working environment provides unique opportunities to group members at every stage to foster skill-sets and intellectual proficiency at the intersection of engineering and medicine.
