Research Highlights

 

I am a second year graduate student in Dr. Kam Leong lab working with Dr. Zaozao Chen on the development of Tissue Engineered Blood Vessels (TEBV) with different stem cells. In this project, we design specialized perfusion chamber and process conditions for different TEBVs using 3D printing technology. We characterize the mechanical properties of the system both at the cellular level and at the tissue level. Ultimately, the TEBVs will be used either as a disease model or a platform for drug efficacy and toxicity test.
