The major research interest in our laboratory is focused on the development of clinically feasible therapeutics to promote the resolution of non-healing chronic wounds. The research goal of our laboratory is (1) to understand molecular and cellular mechanisms by which local inflammatory environmental cues alter phenotypic switch of tissue infiltrating innate immune cells, and (2) to develop selective strategies to engineer microenvironmental cues towards tissue regeneration by utilizing micro/nano-engineered biomaterials that enable spatio-temporal control inflammatory response. To achieve this goal, our laboratory utilizes and combines interdisciplinary approaches of immuno-biology, stem cell biology, cellular and tissue engineering, and nano-bioengineering.
