We perform research on transport phenomena in biological and physiological environments at molecular, cellular and tissue levels. Our research goals are to quantify and understand these complex biotransport phenomena, and to manipulate these to develop and improve various bioengineering applications. Current research topics are focused on tissue engineering and cancer therapies.
