The Lab aims to:

  • Enable fabrication and characterization of novel biomaterials-related technologies
  • Provide unique, cutting-edge resources to students at all levels so they may pursue their biomaterials-related research and innovation interests
  • Stimulate interdisciplinary collaborative research by providing core biomaterial facilities to Rice University, the surrounding Texas Medical Center community, industry partners, and other inter-institutional partners
  • Train individuals and foster education in biomaterials fabrication and characterization techniques for professional and scientific development
