Using a novel direct-writing method at RPI, Dr. Corr is fabricating combinatorial libraries of scaffold, biomolecule, and stem cell constructs with single-cell spatial resolution. These tissue-constructs, with varying composition and geometry, will define stem cell properties, leading to custom-designed tissue replacements built with autologous cells. The lab is working to characterize effects of physical/ biochemical stimuli on stem cells, and how these factors direct their differentiation and development to build stem cells into improved prototype tissue replacement constructs.
