The Healy Laboratory focuses on the interface between biology and materials science to develop engineered systems to explore both fundamental biological phenomena and new applications in translational medicine. The group currently conducts research in the areas of:
1) Stem Cells
2) Bioinspired Systems for Regenerative Medicine
3) Biological Interfaces
4) Microphysiological Systems for Drug Toxicity Screening
The group is highly interdisciplinary, incorporating researchers from the fields of bioengineering, materials engineering, medicine, and molecular biology. We also participate in numerous collaborations with other research groups and institutions, such as UCSF and Stanford.
