Mike Regnier

Dr.  Michael Regnier is Washington Research Foundation Endowed Professor and Vice-Chair for Research in the Department of Bioengineering at the University of Washington (UW). He is an Adjunct Professor of Physiology and Biophysics at UW and an Affiliate Investigator of the Benaroya Research Institute in Seattle, WA. Dr. Regnier received his Ph.D. in Neurobiology from…

Marta Scatena

Dr. Scatena is currently a Research Associate Professor in the Department of Bioengineering. In her laboratory, studies are aimed at understanding the mechanisms underlying the pathological processes of cardiovascular diseases. In particular they are interested in the control and regulation of endothelial cells function and angiogenesis, and the control of inflammation. It is well recognized…

Ying Zheng

Dr. Zheng’s research group is interested in understanding the fundamental structure and functions in living tissue and organ systems at nano-, micro-, and centi- meter scale. Our recent research focus is on designing and engineering the functional units of major human organs by integrating the knowledge of biology and medicine, transport phenomena, matrix mechanics, and…

Kelly Stevens

Dr. Stevens’ research focuses on fabricating engineered tissue systems to understand and treat global heart and liver disease. Her lab is developing new technologies to assemble synthetic human tissues from stem cells, and to remotely control these tissues after implantation in a patient. She is also working to develop micro patterning and bioprinting techniques to create pre-patterned…

Jennifer Davis

Jen Davis

Dr. Davis, a cellular and molecular physiologist, uses genetic engineering to study the biology of cardiac wound healing and remodeling. Specifically, she investigates the role of scar tissue in repair processes and how it affects heart muscle function and prevents regeneration. Dr. Davis identified a key set of molecular signals that activate scar-forming myofibroblast cells…
