Dr. Zheng's research focuses on understanding and engineering the fundamental structure and functions in living tissue and organ systems from nanometer, micrometer to centimeter scale. Our research integrates the knowledge of biology and medicine, transport phenomena, matrix mechanics, and microfluidic technologies. With this means, we aim to recreate 3D physiological microenvironment in vitro, rebuild organ functional units for developmental biology, and ultimately engineer vascularized tissue and organs.
