Mechanical loads, transduced from the extra-cellular space, act on intra-cellular signaling cascades that influence gene expression and temporal tissue structure. Through engineering approaches, the PI’s Translational Biomechanics Lab (TBL) seeks to elucidate how mechanical signals can be manipulated to control the behavior of cardiovascular tissues. This is achieved through theoretical and mathematical approaches, extensive experimental verification, and clinical correlation. Accordingly, the PI’s research thrust areas include: aortic aneurysm repair, targeted therapeutic biomaterials, vascular growth and remodeling, hemodynamics, long-term mechanical support therapy, atherosclerosis, cardiovascular birth defects, 3D tissue engineering, regenerative medicine, coronary artery bypass alternatives, and extra-cellular matrix biology.
