Profile Summary

In the Masters Lab, researchers combine engineering tools with biological knowledge to create tissue-engineered models of disease, with a specific focus on cardiovascular dysfunction and cancer. These in vitro environments help us to: 1) understand how cells integrate multiple cues to make ‘decisions’ about their fate, and 2) decipher the sequence of disease pathogenesis, and 3) identify potential targets for disease treatment.
