Zheng Lab -
micro-physiological systems for regenerative medicine and cardiovascular
Welcome to Dr. Zheng's research group in Bioengineering Department
of University of Washington.
We are interested in understanding the fundamental structure and functions
in living tissue and organ systems of our human body from nanometer,
micrometer to centimeter scale. Further, we are interested in designing and
engineering the functional units in our body integrating the knowledge of
biology and medicine, transport phenomena, matrix mechanics, and microfluidic
technologies. We aim to lead our research towards clinical applications for
regenerative tissue and organs, and therapeutic applications and health
industry to replace the full animal models.
We have active research collaborations with research groups of Jose Lopez, Charles Murry,
Vincenzo Cirulli, Laura
Crisa, and Marta Scatena.
