Assistant Professor, Biomedical Engineering

Zhao's lab seeks to address the challenges associated with engineering completely biological cardiovascular tissues for regenerative medicine applications. We are developing innovative cell therapies using stem cell sheets to create 3D scaffold-free tissue constructs with the structural similarity, necessary mechanical characteristics, and sufficient immuno-compatibility to facilitate functional in vivo

Senior Lecturer, Biomedical Engineering

One of the significant hurdles of regenerative engineering is creating instructive materials capable of directing the development of the complex multi-scale nature of tissues. In our laboratory we look to use specific contextual studies of native and pathological tissue behavior (both in vitro and in vivo) to develop rationale
