Wednesday, July 10, 2013

Edward Sander, assistant professor of biomedical engineering, has received a two-year, $151,000 research grant from the National Institute of Arthritis and Musculoskeletal and Skin Diseases (NIAMS), National Institutes of Health, US Department of Health and Human Services.

Sander will study controlling the mechanobilogy of cutaneous wounds to reduce hypertrophic scar.

Sander, who joined the College of Engineering in 2011, presently has research interests in wound healing, skin tissue engineering, microvessel formation in engineered skin; multiscale biomechanics of native and engineered connective, vascular, and ocular tissue; image-based multiscale modeling of mechanics and damage in ligaments and tissue analogs; mechanobiology of growth and remodeling processes in engineered tissues; and microscopy and image.
