Vascular Pharmacoengineering and Biotherapeutics Laboratory
Our research aims to uncover new insights into vascular and pharmaceutical biology and to apply these to design and create new biotherapeutics. We also strive to develop new approaches to drug delivery and tissue engineering using fundamental tools from both engineering and molecular biology. We employ techniques in protein engineering, biomaterials, genomics, proteomics and nanotechnology, with a strong emphasis on animal models. In general, we are interested in projects at the interface of vascular biology and bioengineering with the objective of generating new therapies that can ultimately be translated to clinical use. An underpinning goal of the lab is to endow trainees with the skills and knowledge necessary to become leaders in the biotechnology and pharmaceutical industries.
