Biomaterials Group

The Biomaterials Group develops methods and reference materials for characterizing interactions of materials and biological systems.

Projects/Programs

Tissue Engineering—Our goal is to develop reliable tools and standards for measuring the properties of cells, biomaterials, scaffolds and tissue-engineered constructs. As regenerative medicine moves from a research …

Dental Materials Project—Our goal is to enable the development and manufacturing of biomaterials for oral health moving forward in 21st century by providing critical measurement methods and reference materials. Our …

Non-Linear Optical Imaging—The traditional chemical labeling used in optical microscopy can alter cells and materials, thus impeding determination of their true structure, function and response. We are developing broadband …

Bioimaging—Our goal is to develop methods and materials for imaging-based characterization of molecular signatures that occur during cellular proliferation, differentiation and internalization, in order to …

Protein Preservation—Our goal is to address critical measurement issues that exist regarding chemical and physical stability of biomacromolecules (proteins and DNA) in hydrophilic, hydrogen-bonding glasses such as …
