My research is focused on using soft biomaterials, i.e. hydrogels to deliver cells and bioactive molecules (proteins, growth factors and drugs) for tissue engineering and regenerative medicine applications. The hydrogel delivery system is designed to instruct and induce cell signalling down a pathway of tissue organisation and formation.
