The Tissue Engineering & Biomaterials Laboratory is located within the Fischell Department of Bioengineering at the University of Maryland. Our lab uses the principles of both engineering and life sciences to develop biomaterials that improve the quality of life of ill or injured patients. We begin with polymer science methods to synthesize novel hydrolytically degradable polymers and then fabricate these polymers into easily implantable biomaterials. Molecular and cellular biology principles are then incorporated to understand the interaction of cells, tissues, and higher life systems with these novel biomaterials. Areas of focus in our lab include the study of biomaterials for the delivery of therapeutics, scaffolds for orthopedic tissue engineering applications, and the interaction of biomaterials and tissues. Please use this site as both a window into the work and personnel at the Tissue Engineering & Biomaterials Laboratory as well as a gateway to bioengineering, cell biology, and biomaterials research.
