Canada Research Chair (CRC), Functional Cardiovascular Tissue Engineering

Research:

My research program consists of several different projects that all fall under umbrella of cardiac tissue engineering and regenerative medicine. We are focused on pursuing molecular mechanisms governing the formation of contractile cardiac tissue in vitro as well as on practical strategies for treatment of myocardial infarction and heart failure through development of new biomaterials. We pursue the research programs alone (e.g. advanced bioreactors and cell tri-culture) or in collaboration with other PIs (e.g. microfluidic separation of heart cells).
