Computer-Assisted Tissue Engineering and Blood System Biology Laboratory

Equipment/facility: Facility

    Description

    The Computer-Assisted Tissue Engineering and Blood System Biology Laboratory focuses on high-performance image- based modeling of complex flows with applications ranging from bone tissue engineering, to blood systems biology, to drug delivery. The lab is currently involved in two major projects. First, we are developing computer-assisted tissue engineering technologies through predictive modeling of stem cell behavior and the control of single-cell migration. Second, we are looking closely at the mechanisms of blood clot formation, which is relevant to thrombotic disorders such as strokes, heart attacks and hemophilia. The tools used for this work involve soft lithography, hardware automation, super-resolution microscopy, computer vision and machine learning.
