My research focus is on the design and development of an injectable two-component hydrogel system for stem cell transplantation. The hydrogel system is comprised of two recombinantly engineered proteins that interact through simple mixing at constant physiological conditions to form a gel. This system is expected to significantly increase cell viability, proliferation, and differentiation during and after transplantation and is ideal for encapsulationg cells and small biomolecules for direct delivery inside the body at the injury site.
