Research Fields & Interdisciplinary Pursuits


Controlling the fate of pluripotent (iPSCs and ESCs) and multipotent stem cells (MSCs) including the maintenance of self-renewal and the stimulation into specific lineage cells such as neurogenic, osteogenic, odontogenic and chondrogenic cells, is explored through the use of matrix and delivery cues. A wide variety of substrates, such as nano-structured matrixes, surface tethered/functionalized scaffolds, and 3D hydrogels among others are currently being tested. In combination with the inductive substrates, external stimuli may also dictate the fate of stem cells.
