    Research:
    Three dimensional liver tissue models that consists of both hepatocytes and other non parenchymal cells, with investigation of the microarchitectural organization of the co‚Äźculture, is our target. The ultimate goal of this project is to engineer transplantable liver graft that contains the bile ducts along with the parenchymal cells which is a critical component in the liver but has been neglected in liver tissue engineering research to date. We hope to reach that robust model that could be used in various fields of biomedical sciences such as drug discovery, diagnostic tools, and therapeutic approaches in regenerative medicine (Bioartificial Liver (BAL) devices).

    Research:
    I use mathematical models and develop thermofluidic micro systems to control the preconcentration of cells prior to biopreservation. This way, we hope to develop novel technologies to facilitate safe preparation and storage of delicate mammalian cells that will eradicate the complexities originating from the necessity of using high cooling rates and high cryoprotectant agent concentrations.
