Ph.D., University of Minnesota-Twin Cities, 2004


My laboratory is dedicated to the research and education on developing multiscale (quantum, nano, micro, and macro) biomaterials and devices reinforced by artificial intelligence technology to (1) engineer, bank, and deliver small molecules, genes, peptides/proteins, cells, tissues, and organs; and (2) create 3D biomimetic systems in vitro with bioinspired spatiotemporal complexity. The ultimate goal is to deliver innovative solutions for improving the safety and efficacy of early detection and treatment of diseases including but not limited to cancer, infertility, diabetes, cardiovascular diseases, and neurological disorders.
