Research

Developing genetic circuits that can impose multicellular self-organization in mammalian cells, so that cultured cells arrange in non-random patterns. Subsequent engineering of these synthetic patterned platforms to produce ligands of interest for stem cell applications, acting as synthetic stem cell niches.
