What excites us

Our goal is to establish a fundamental understanding of the relationship between tissue mechanics and microstructure to develop novel synthetic material systems, accelerate the development of new therapies, change clinical practices.

Our group leverages novel nano and micro scale experimental mechanics to develop a fundamental understanding of tissue mechanical response to physiological loads. We couple this with the emerging field of metal additive manufacturing to develop materials that enable seamless and active interfacing with the human body for regenerative health care.
