Mechanoregulation of Cardiovascular Tissue Development (Systematic Bioengineering Laboratory)

Project Description: This project will develop biomedical technologies for elucidating the mechanoregulation of cardiovascular systems during tissue development and regeneration. The student will combine biofabrication of 3D cardiac tissue models, nanoengineered probes for dynamic single-cell gene and biomechanical analysis, for probing cardiovascular tissue development.
