Research in the Andreadis focuses in the broad area of cell, molecular and tissue engineering and regenerative medicine. It spans lab spans a wide spectrum from fundamental to technological to pre-clinical/translational research. It is highly interdisciplinary, and is facilitated by collaboration with researchers from the School of Medicine (Pediatrics, Physiology and Biophysics); Dental School (Oral Biology); Center of Excellence in Bioinformatics and Life Sciences; Roswell Park Cancer Institute (RPCI) and Biomedical Engineering. Currently, research in our group focuses in the following areas of molecular, cell and tissue bioengineering:

I. Cardiovascular Tissue Engineering: The Role of Immune Cells in Vascular Graft Regeneration (NHLBI, R01HL151196-01).

II. Stem Cell and Skeletal Muscle Aging and Metabolism (NIA, 1R01 AG068250-1, R56 AG065561-01)

III. Epidermal Derived Neural Crest Stem Cells for Treatment of Demyelinating Diseases (NIBIB, R01 EB023114, At NCE)

IV. Molecular Engineering of Biomimetic Biomaterials for Protein and Gene Delivery for Salivary Gland Regeneration (NIDCR, 5R01DE022971-07).

V. Intercellular Adhesion Signaling in Stem Cell Differentiation and Cancer (NSF CBET
