Research in the MCM lab combines micro- and nanoscale technologies with intelligent biomaterials to create new and improved biomimetic platforms for studying the influence chemistry, surface topography, and material properties play on directing cell fate or the ability for respond and release therapeutics.
Research in the lab focuses on the design, synthesis, characterization, optimization, and use of advanced micro/nano biomaterial systems. The broader impacts of this research are for the development of innovative systems for targeted, cell-specific responsive drug delivery and regenerative medicine applications.
