Rebecca Carrier

Advanced Drug Delivery Research (ADDRES) Laboratory conducts research in regenerative medicine, with a focus on intestinal and retinal tissue engineering, and in oral drug delivery, with a focus on enabling effective oral delivery of therapeutics.

Srirupa Chakraborty
Assistant Professsor

Simbiosys Lab focuses on structure-dynamics modeling of complex biosystems by looking at these through the virtual microscope. The goal of the lab is to solve biomedical problems at the molecular level both from first principles, as well as harnessing data-driven approaches.

Richard West
