ESoftBio Lab

Engineering Soft and Biological systems

The goal of our lab is to discover new physical and biological principles emerging from the interactions between active living materials and their microenvironment. We design complex multicellular systems and probe them at three-dimensional biological interfaces. Our work is truly interdisciplinary and attracts expertise from diverse scientific backgrounds including engineering, biology, physics, and materials science. Please see the Research page to know more about the past work and our future direction.
