The goal of our research program is to understand and engineer the fundamental structure and functions in living tissue and organ systems of our human body from nanometer, micrometer to centimeter scale. The fundamentals and technology requirements of our program includes a mixture of biomechanics, transport phenomena, microfluidic technologies, and biology and medicine. The success of our research achievement may lead towards clinical applications for regenerative tissue and organs, and therapeutic applications and health industry with deconstructive in vivo-mimicing models.
