Key research interests

Tissue engineering for drug research

My research focuses on developing functional and predictive cell-based tools for drug research and personalized medicine. We use stem cells- and biomaterials-based tissue engineering approach to produce functional cells and tissues. We have developed flexible, dynamic three-dimensional (3D) culture systems for human pluripotent stem cells (human embryonic stem cells and induced pluripotent stem cells) and human cancer cells. The current specific objective is to generate functional hepatocytes with 3D configuration as drug development tools for drug and chemical testing. We apply advanced cell culture technologies and novel biomaterials, along with molecular biology methods. Our research not only develops new cell-based technologies but also advance fundamental understanding of how matrix and biomaterials affect cell behavior and performance.
