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.

In Spring 2020, Prof. Masters has office hours on Wednesdays from 1-2pm in 3158 ECB, or by appointment in either ECB or WIMR.
