About Our Lab

Stanford University
Research Interests
Extracellular matrix viscoelasticity, Cellular mechanotransduction, Biopolymer gel mechanics

We are interested in elucidating the complex mechanical properties of cells and the extracellular matrix, and in turn, investigating how these mechanical properties and other mechanical cues play a role in important biological processes such as cancer progression, stem cell differentiation, or cell division. Our approach is to develop new force-measurement instrumentation and engineered biomaterials for 3D cell culture to provide new insight into these areas.
