Synthetic Hydrogels for Human Organoid (HO) Generation and Transplantation
  • Synthetic hydrogel exhibits high cytocompatibility and minimal toxicity and inflammation in vivo for improved human organoid viability 
  • Injectable delivery vehicle supports localized HO engraftment in mucosal wounds to potentially enhance wound closure and repair
  • Modular design and delivery via endoscopic techniques enables the translational potential of this delivery platform for regenerative medicine and overcomes limitations associated with the use of commercially available matrices for hPSC-based organoid technologies
Synthetic Hydrogel for Satellite Cell Delivery in Dystrophic Skeletal Muscle
  • Addresses the critical need for a viable treatment for deterioration of the diaphragm, which is a leading cause of respiratory failure and death in Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy patients
  • Engineered hydrogels comprised of synthetic polymers and peptides are designed to enable successful muscle satellite cell (MuSC) transplantation to the diaphragm or other dystrophic skeletal muscle tissue
  • Shown to support MuSC survival, proliferation, and differentiation, which can enable restoration of dystrophin – a protein absent in DMD and critical to strengthening and repairing muscle fibers
Synthesis of Alkaloids

This technology can be used in the development of yeast-based syntheses of plant alkaloids, or any other biosynthetic pathway that uses 5-hydroxytryptohan or L-DOPA as precursors. It can be used for the synthesis of compound monoterpene indole alkaloids derived from strictosidine (e.g. quinine, camptothecin, ajmalicine, serpentine, vinblastine and vincristine) or benzylisoquinoline alkaloids derived from dopamine (e.g. berberine and morphine).
