Professor

I am a bioengineer focusing on micro and nanofabrication techniques to create new devices for drug and cell delivery as well as biomaterials for cell and tissue regeneration. I am the immediate past chair (7 years) of the Department of Bioengineering and Therapeutic Sciences, a joint department in...

Zev Gartner, PhD

Professor

My laboratory is working to understand how cells self-organize into tissues, how the structure of tissues help regulate cell behaviors, and how tissue structure breaks down in diseases like cancer. By understanding these processes we hope to reveal general principles contributing to cancer...
