We are working in the field of microtissue engineering, a unique and new research area, which integrates conventional tissue engineering, biomaterials and microfabrication technologies to engineer microscale 3D tissues or microenvironments recapitulating the physiological and architectural features of native tissue niche with well-defined precision and bio-mimicry. Microtissue engineering provides innovative and effective tools and solutions for cell/tissue engineering, regenerative medicine, drug screening and pathology study. We are working in highly inter-disciplinary and innovation-driven arena, providing unlimited opportunities for creative and ambitious minds. Some of our dreams include building functional liver/heart/cartilage tissues; achieving better regenerative therapy to cure cardiovascular/liver diseases; discovering anti-fibrotic compound to treat liver or heart diseases.
