What do we do?
The goal of our research program is to develop bio-engineering approaches that advance regenerative therapies in the Nervous System (NS). Projects apply micro and nanotechnology to dissect fundamental and mechanistic biological questions central to neuro-regeneration and repair.
Our research program develops technological approaches to evaluate migration, cohesion, and interconnectivity of neural progenitor cells.
Recent projects develop pioneering microfluidic approaches to investigate retinal development and regeneration in the visual system.
Research contributions from the VazLab align along 5 primary areas:
Innovations from the VazLab group have produced bio-engineering systems to model and evaluate cell responses during development and to manipulate these behaviors to improve Human health.
Our projects have been awarded continuous research funding from the National Institutes of Health (NIH), National Science Foundation (NSF), Department of Defense (DoD), and private foundations.
