Solving important problems together

Welcome to the Shoichet Lab

"Our research program requires a cross disciplinary approach where aspects of engineering, chemistry, and biology are applied to the fields of Regenerative Medicine, Tissue Engineering and Drug Delivery. We approach unsolved problems in medicine by creating a series of design criteria which we then use to formulate solutions."
