Innovator Bio

My research team develops biomaterials and devices to improve bone healing, particularly with critical-sized bone defects caused by cancer and trauma, which often lead to limb loss. My lab develops biomimetic biomaterials and explores how 3D shape and structure affect the biological and mechanical performance of bone healing scaffolds and devices in orthopedic medicine.
