Research Interest

The PRecision Immune MicroEnvironments (PRIME) Lab focuses on using engineered materials and synthetic biology as platforms to: study immune cells, diagnose disease, and develop therapeutics. Our long-term vision is to develop non-invasive systems for monitoring immune function within tissues. Along the way, we hope to contribute to a basic understanding of synthetic receptor systems, deepen knowledge of the host-material interface, and design material and cell-based tools for monitoring and treating immune dysfunction.
