Mechanoregeneration and Medical Devices

Mechanical cues regulate many aspects of biology, and we are developing materials capable of providing either defined resistance to cell intrinsic mechanical forces or application of specific extrinsic forces to tissues.  These biomaterials can enhance the effectiveness of stem cell therapies, directly support and regenerate damaged tissues, and have led to bio-inspired new medical devices with unprecedented properties.
