We use 3D printing to fabricate three-dimensional (3D) scaffolds of varying architecture to provide 3D organization of neurons and their supporting cells with the objective of mimicking their 3D environment in the human brain. The scaffolds are constructed of biocompatible protein and protein composites. We use these platforms to study neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s and, drug delivery. Another research interest of our lab is the fabrication of implantable protein-based neuron chips.




We are pleased to announce a new program: Master of Science in Histopathology. In response to increased demand for highly competent technicians in translational research, we have developed this unique, hands-on program to prepare students to conduct biomedical research, including basic molecular and cell biology techniques, as well as the processing and analysis of primary tissue, in translational research.
