Adrian Buganza-Tepole is the principal investigator of the Buganza Lab, who's research vision is the development of predictive computational tools to increase our basic understanding of mechanobiological adaptation and soft matter mechanics, and to apply these tools in relevant clinical settings. These include but are not limited to tissue expansion, wound healing, and reconstructive surgery. Additionally, modeling and simulation of biological systems requires suitable numerical methods. For instance, we are interested in the development of new thin shell, multifield, and multiscale finite element formulations. research focuses on computational models of soft tissue biomechanics.

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.
