Modern biomaterial science has made extraordinary leaps in creating synthetic materials that mimic the complexity of native tissues to restore function, generate replacement tissues and organs, and advance the field of regenerative medicine.
The true exciting aspect of tissue engineering is that it harnesses the body's ability to heal itself.
The tissues in our bodies have undergone countless evolutionary advances to achieve the level of function that we have today.
The paradigm shift to working with the body provides numerous opportunities to learn from nature and improve upon current therapeutic strategies.
Our lab is in the brand new Engineering Education and Research Center (EERC) at the University of Texas at Austin. We are located on the 7th floor at 7.646. Our student offices are at 7.614.
Congratulations to Joshua McCune and Anupriya Jose for placing 1st and 3rd at the annual BME poster competition!
