INSPIRED BY NATURE, MOTIVATED BY HEALTH

Creating unique biomaterials to solve problems in tissue engineering and regenerative medicine by borrowing nature’s own designs, integrating biology and materials science.

PROTEINS AS INJECTABLE MATERIALS

Proteins form the essential, insoluble backbone of our cellular environment. We genetically engineer protein-based materials to mimic those naturally found in this environment. By borrowing from nature’s toolbox, we further modify these proteins to assemble only with body heat allowing complex cellular environments to be created with simple solution injections.
