Dr. Khetanii is the director of the Microfabricated Tissue Models (MTM) lab. The MTM lab is dedicated to improving human health by conducting research at theinterdisciplinary interface of engineering and the life sciences. In particular, we engineer liver tissue systems that are useful for screening toxic drugs in vitro prior to reaching human clinical trials (organ-on-a-chip), modeling aspects of global human liver diseases for the development of better therapeutics (drug discovery), and cell-based therapies for patients suffering from liver disease (regenerative medicine). 

 

 

UIC is a Leader in Regenerative Sciences Research

Moving beyond tissue replacement, using materials to enable our bodies to regenerate damaged and failing tissues.

We are leading investigations into how materials interact with living tissues, and the building of tissue replacements for the growth of cells/tissues to replace lost tissues. The Center for Wound Healing and Tissue Regeneration (CWHTR) is a unique community of scientists and clinicians devoted to the study of injury, wound healing, and regeneration. The Laboratory of Applied Dental Biomaterials and Interfaces is a NIH funded center studying the properties of the tooth in order to develop reparative/regenerative biomaterials to replace lost tooth structure.

 

Research at the UIC College of Dentistry

Our investigators lead cutting-edge research to discover and translate new knowledge at the boundaries of science, transforming oral health care practice, social systems and related technologies for the benefit of individuals, families and communities.

 Craniofacial Pathobiology
Working to improve treatment of oral cancer, caries, peridontal and other oral diseases. 

Regenerative Science
Moving beyond tissue replacement, using materials to enable our bodies to regenerate damaged and failing tissues.

Clinical, Translational & Community
Leading transformative studies to improve oral health outcomes both in the clinic and the community.
