Student working on a research project.

Signaling Biomaterials

We are studying how signaling biomaterials can be used to control intercellular interactions and communication. This will be relevant in a number of disease conditions, where cell communication can go out of control and causes tumor growth, metastases, or atherosclerosis. Future work will explore how properties of biomaterials and their signaling cues can be used to interrupt the crosstalk between cells that causes the acceleration of two seemingly unrelated diseases: tumor growth and atherosclerosis.
