"Nanoengineered Hydrogel Bioadhesives for Medical Applications"
Dr. Nasim Annabi is an Assistant Professor of Chemical and Biomedical Engineering at UCLA. Her research interests lie at the interface of biomaterial design, tissue engineering, nano- and micro-engineering technologies. The lab has expertise in the development and integration of advanced biomaterials with tissue engineering and microfabrication techniques to create complex functional 3D tissue constructs as well as novel bioadhesives/sealants for surgical applications. Engineering these tissue-like constructs will help to develop therapies, understand disease, and screen drugs for a range of biomedical applications. The ultimate goal of her research program is to translate the engineered microscale biomaterials and tissue constructs into clinic.
