ACADEMIC YEAR (Fall & Spring)

Faculty Sponsor   Course   Sect.   Research Interests

Bluestein, Danny           Biofluids and cardiovascular pathologies

Brouzes, Eric            Describe and understand  role of tissue heterogeneity in normal tissues and in onset and development of diseases like cancer

Clark, Richard           Design and development of bioactive peptides and 3-D complex extracellular matrices (ECM) that will enhance soft tissue repair and regeneration

Du, Congwu            The broad goal of this laboratory is to develop advanced optical instrumentation to detect and characterize the physiological processes in the living biological systems such as brain and heart.

Entcheva, Emilia           Leads pioneering work in the field of cardiac optogenetics - the use of light for the precise interrogation, stimulation and control of excitable tissue, including heart, that has been genetically altered to become light-sensitive

Frame, Molly           Integrating signal transduction events with physical properties of blood flow at the microvascular level

Judex, Stefan           Identification of precise parameters that define skeletal tissue quantity and quality and their perturbation to applied physical stimuli

Lin, Wei           Embedded system and ultrasound technologies with applications in medical instrumentation

Liu, Jonathan           Develop biomedical optical devices for diagnostics and therapy

Mujica- Parodi, Lilianne           Using a variety of methodologies, our lab focuses on relationships between four simultaneously or near-simultaneously interacting systems: neural, cardiac, endocrine, and cognitive, to better understand the neurobiology of arousal, fear, and stress

Pan, Yingtian           Current research is focused on early-stage epithelial cancer detection, diagnosis of cartilage injury and repair, and assessment of engineering tissue growth. The lab also studies skin dehydration, geriatric incontinence, fluorescence imaging and light microscopy

Qin, Yi-Xian   BIO 486    T13    Physical mechanisms involved in control of tissue growth, healing, and homeostasis, especially bone adaptation and regeneration influenced by mechanical environment, as well as how these mechanisms can be used in treatment and prevention of disease and injury and bone tissue engineering

Rubenstein, David           The goal of our lab is to 1) develop a biomimetic three-dimensional tissue engineering scaffolds that promotes microvascular blood vessel growth and 2) elucidate mechanisms that induce cardiovascular disease responses.

Rubin, Clinton           Understanding the cellular mechanisms responsible for the growth, healing, and homeostasis of bone

Sitharaman, Balaji   BIO 487    T14    Work at the interface of bionanotechnology, regenerative and molecular medicine and synergize the advancements in each of these distinct fields to develop a dynamic research program that tackles problems related to diagnosis/ treatment of disease and tissue regeneration

Strey, Helmut           We are interested in how to tune the interactions of water-soluble building blocks so as to induce their assembly into useful microstructures much needed for the next generation of controlled drug delivery, biosensors and DNA sequencing applications

Vaska, Paul           All aspects of the physics of positron emission tomography (PET)

Yin, Wei           My major research interest is to investigate how altered blood flow and stress distribution affect platelet and endothelial cell behavior and lead to cardiovascular disease initiation.
