The Microfabricated Tissue Models (MTM) lab is dedicated to improving human health by conducting research at the interdisciplinary interface of engineering and the life sciences. In particular, we engineer liver tissue systems that are useful for screening toxic drugs in vitro prior to reaching human clinical trials (organ-on-a-chip), modeling aspects of global human liver diseases for the development of better therapeutics (drug discovery), and cell-based therapies for patients suffering from liver disease (regenerative medicine). 

On this website, you will find information on the types of research projects we are currently engaged in, our dissemination of research results through publications, the personnel with diverse backgrounds who make up our team, and our contact information should you need additional information. Thank you for your interest in our work!
