    Combining molecular engineering and multi-scale fabrication to innovate new biomaterials for medicine and biology 


    My current research at Rice University is at the interface of biotechnology and materials science. A major focus of my lab is the study and development of biomaterials and engineered cells, which can produce, tailored immune responses in vivo. To accomplish this goal I have established an interdisciplinary program that combines molecular engineering, multi-scaled materials fabrication (nano, micro, and macro scaled), cell biology, and in vivo biomedical imaging to innovative novel platforms of implantable devices for applications in immunology, tissue regeneration, and minimally invasive long-term in vivo sensing.


    Background: The role of implanted biomaterials and devices in modern medicine is rapidly expanding, but their efficacy is often compromised by host immune recognition and subsequent foreign body responses. Recent discoveries on physical properties (geometry, surface porosity, mechanical stiffness) and chemical properties (molecular surface engineering, reducing protein fouling, and biomolecule displays) that can modulate host immune responses are now creating new opportunities to innovate novel, long-term functioning implantable systems for a broad spectrum of clinical applications, including cell transplantation, localized controlled drug release, continuous sensing and monitoring of physiological conditions, and tissue regeneration. While significant progress has been made, the clinical translation of these applications are still hindered by a lack of suitable biomaterials that can appropriately interact with the host immune system in a controlled and tailored manner. To achieve these goals, it will be necessary to; 1) expand our understanding of the interplay between materials properties and their influence on host immune responses, 2) based on discoveries, develop new materials with tailored properties to control host immune cell behavior, and 3) develop tools to non-invasively track cellular and biomolecular activity in vivo.
