My lab works at the intersection of materials science, cell biology and clinical research to design next-generation technologies for: (1) understanding fundamental cellular and molecular processes; (2) understanding disease mechanisms and improving diagnosis; and (3) developing cell-based and biomaterial-based interventions and technologies. The tools we develop are applied to understanding the physiology of the lung, nervous system and a variety of other organ systems, as well as for treatment of traumatic injuries to the soft tissues of the body.
What brought you to your current institution? I was recruited to Dalhousie to build an interdisciplinary research program investigating cell-material interactions.
