Research Strengths

Engineering rigor and invention are our core principles, but we start with a focus on biology.



Technology Focus Areas

Biomedical Data Sciences and Systems Biology | Biomedical Imaging | Tissue Engineering and Biomaterials | Biomechanics and Mechanobiology | Drug and Gene Delivery

Whether we are modeling or engineering cells and tissues, analyzing large datasets, developing new imaging technologies, or synthesizing novel biomaterials, the problem statement always starts with the biology underlying the system, therapy, or disease process.

Biomedical Application Areas

Cardiovascular Disease | Infectious Diseases | Cancer | Fibrosis | Musculoskeletal Diseases | Brain Disorders

Co-location within the highly-ranked UVA School of Medicine and Health System uniquely positions us to influence the future of healthcare.
