About Us

Our Mission

Our mission is to perform cutting edge research in the broad area of cell, gene and tissue engineering including stem cell research to develop innovative engineering technologies for regenerative medicine; as well as to educate the next generation of scientists and engineers and prepare them to be the future leaders in this field.

From the Director

Thank you for your interest in the new Center for Gene, Cell and Tissue Engineering. We bring together University at Buffalo faculty members from the School of Engineering and Applied Sciences, the Jacobs School of Medicine and Biomedical Sciences, the School of Public Health and Health Professions, and the School of Dental Medicine in a interdisciplinary program aimed at enhancing cutting-edge research in the broad area of cell, gene and tissue engineering. We seek to develop innovative engineering technologies for regenerative medicine and to educate the future leaders in this field.

Our faculty members perform research in stem cells/tissue engineering and regenerative medicine; biomaterials; cell and tissue biomechanics; novel imaging technologies; high throughput data acquisition technologies; BioMEMS; gene, protein, drug delivery; and omics (genomics, proteomics, glycomics) and associated systems/computational/big data engineering.

This rich, interdisciplinary environment fosters the integration of scientific discoveries and engineering breakthroughs with the ultimate goal to develop innovative technologies that can be translated into clinical practice. The combination of a highly trained science and engineering workforce, and the potential for clinical translation and commercialization of research findings, are expected to have significant economic impact in Western New York, as well as throughout New York State.

We look forward to the coming years in the program.
