Research Interests

The Regenerative Biomaterials and Therapeutics lab focuses utilizing on two main techniques developed in the lab for tissue engineering applications: (1) Freeform Reversible Embedding of Suspended Hydrogels (FRESH) 3D bioprinting and the (2) shrink wrapping of cells in extracellular matrices (ECM). FRESH has the ability to print high fidelity constructs, made out of native structural proteins, like collagen, which normally would be unable to hold shape if printed in air.  The Feinberg lab works on projects focused on regenerative of a variety of tissue types, including heart muscle, skeletal muscle, and corneal tissue.
