Assistant Professor, Biomedical Engineering

The research of Dr. Xuan Liu’s laboratory focuses on developing novel optical imaging and sensing techniques for biomedical applications. One major area of our study is optical coherence tomography (OCT) which provides high resolution cross-sectional images of biological specimen in real-time. OCT has been used to help the diagnosis of various . . .

Assistant Professor, Biomedical Engineering

Dr. Jiang's research work straddles the border between biomechanics and biomedical imaging. He is actively developing image-based computational tools for easily transforming raw biomedical imaging data into simple but clinically/biologically relevant biomechanical parameters of soft tissue pathologies (e.g. elasticity) and blood flow characteristics (e.g. kinetic energy). His current and past work . . .

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 integration. We are also trying to recreate biomimetic microenvironment for 3D tissue development by precisely manipulating biomaterials, oxygen tension, and hydrodynamic culture . . .
