Heo Laboratory

Welcome to Heo Laboratory

The Heo Lab is focused on nuclear mechanobiology and tissue engineering to develop new therapeutic strategies for musculoskeletal repair and regeneration. Our research team explores the feedback between the biophysical environment and cell biology in the context of musculoskeletal tissue remodeling (with development, disease, degeneration, or repair). We also develop innovative methods to enable precise control of the cellular microenvironment and utilize sophisticated experimental techniques [e.g., Super-resolution stochastic optical reconstruction microscopy (STORM)] to address our fundamental questions about how biophysical cues regulate cellular behaviors at the nanoscale. In addition, our team aims to expand our findings and knowledge to engineer complex functional tissue constructs for regenerative medicine applications using fabrication techniques (e.g., electrospinning and 3D Bioprinting).
