The research in the Biomaterials Engineering Laboratory(BEL) is focused on the engineering of clinically relevant multiscale biocompatible materials that will exploit biological processes to detect and treat dysregulation of complex diseases. The recent interest of the BEL are in developing novel biosafe nanomaterials, understanding their interactions with biological microenvironments, and utilizing such nanotechnologies to enhance visualization, prevention, and treatment of cancer. The long-term goals of the BEL are to improve the function of living systems by designing materials, devices, and systems based on biological and non-biological components, and their hydrids. The BEL is an interdisciplinary research lab spanning the interface of materials science, chemistry, and biology.
