Tissue Engineering & Biomaterials
Developing strategies for the recreation of tissues and the modeling of systems for research or drug testing. Cornell biomedical engineers design biomaterial platforms to recreate tissues for functional replacement therapies, as models of normal and diseased states for basic research, and for use in drug testing. Well-controlled and biocompatible biomaterials are also needed for selective delivery of therapeutic and imaging contrast agents as well as for gene therapy approaches.
