Laboratories Associated with BME
3D Microphysiological Systems Lab
Contact: Sylvia Natividad-Diaz, Ph.D.
Clinical Applied Physiology (CAPh) Lab
Contact: Alvaro Gurovich, Ph.D
The CAPh Lab studies the effects of common lifestyle interventions (e.g. exercise and nutritional supplements) in the cardiovascular system, more specifically in the pathophysiological interactions with atherosclerosis. Atherosclerosis is associated with 90% of cardiac diseases and stroke.
Inspired Materials & Stem-Cell Based Tissue Engineering Laboratory (IMSTEL)
Contact: Binata Joddar, Ph.D
IMSTEL is focused on understanding the signaling and mechanical cues derived from the stem cell niche which ultimately lead to stem cell proliferation, differentiation, or disease. My current goals are to more...
Contact: Kyung-An Han, Ph.D
Neuromodulation is a fundamental physiological phenomenon underlying behavioral plasticity. Using a comprehensive research program that employs cellular, molecular, genetic, chemical, pharmacological and behavioral approaches, our goal is to explore the cellular and biochemical nature of more...
