 Mission Statement

  • Develop a cellularized cardiac patch for use in repair of congenital heart defects that is autologous, contractile and actively conductive
     
  • Investigate mechanotransductive pathways in cardiac maturation and the development of cardiac defects
     
  • Collaborate on clinical investigations and evaluate therapeutic technologies for congenital heart surgery
     
  • Utilize primary human cells and tissues for most experiments, and focus on biophysical cues, such as strain, elastic modulus, shear stress and electrical stimulation
     
  • Train graduate and undergraduate students for careers in medicine and engineering
