We are dedicated to developing better bioengineered tools to address unmet biomedical needs and biological questions. Through working at the interface of material sciences, biomedical engineering, biology and medicine, our interdisciplinary and collaborative team aims to develop next generation stem cell-based therapeutics and miniaturized diagnostics (Research). We are also fully committed to the professional development of the personnel in the laboratory and do everything we can to ensure successful career paths (Education). If you are interested in joining the team, collaborating, donating, or are interested in what our research expertise can do for you, please contact Dr. Weian Zhao (email@example.com).
