Who We Are

akloxin-group-spring-2015Our research group seeks to design dynamic materials and to use them to understand and direct important biological signals in tissue regeneration and disease. We design materials to mimic soft tissues and whose properties can be modified at any location and time. These novel biomaterials are used as a flexible platform for cell culture to ask fundamental questions about how the environment surrounding a cell influences regeneration or disease progression. These findings are utilized to develop better strategies for tissue repair or disease treatment towards improving human health and quality of life.
