Core 2: Mechanotransductive Methods

Cardiovascular researchers:

  • Wagner Laboratory: The primary research interests of Dr. William Wagner’s Laboratory at the McGowan Institute for Regenerative Medicine are in the area of cardiovascular engineering with projects that address medical device biocompatibility and design, tissue engineering, and targeted imaging. Dr. Wagner’s laboratory brings expertise in structural mechanics for the assessment of tissue biophysical properties.
  • Huang Laboratory: Dr. Ngan Huang’s laboratory uses extracellular matrix proteins and biomaterials to study the effects of biophysical and biomechanical cues on mechanobiology and stem cell differentiation. Using the insights gained from these studies, Dr. Huang and her group hope to develop new therapies in tissue engineering and regenerative medicine.
