Research in the TTDD lab aims to design and develop implantable medical devices that augment or assist native function. We borrow principles from nature to design implantable, biomimetic therapeutic devices. Research is broadly categorized into three areas (i) mechanical assist and repair devices, (ii) biomaterial and therapy delivery devices and (iii) enhanced preclinical and computational test model development. Ultimately, the combined aim of our work is to translate enhanced therapeutic devices into the clinical arena.
