Subplan Advisory Committee
Dr. Nora Sarvetnick (Chair and Program Director), Dr. Sung-Ho Huh, Dr. Mark Riley, and Dr. Sara Myers

The MSIA - Regenerative Medicine & Biomaterials Design sub-plan enables students to engage in and learn the processes and methodologies affiliated with aspects of regenerative medicine and bioengineering that have translational aspects. The types of research considered relevant include, but are not limited to organogenesis, tissue engineering, polymer chemistry, biomechanics, medical robotics, imaging, stem cell research, and clinical therapeutics.

PhD Curriculum

MSIA - Regenerative Medicine & Biomaterials Design PhD students must choose one of the two tracks offered by this program: the Biomedical Track or the Biomedical Engineering Track
