Biomechanical forces affect cells in our body. We are interested in how forms of forces, or lack of, influence immune cells. In particular, how altered physiological forces contributes to disease, implant rejection, and impaired immunity.
In vitro experiments are as accurate as in vivo biology only if the cell microenvironment is bio mimicked representatively. We are vested in recreating and understanding cellular niches through additive layering of biochemical and biomolecular building blocks.
Optical microscopy provides qualitative data for biological research. We are developing novel quantitative methods as well as enhancing existing ones to add to our expanding toolboxes.
