Sarah Lee analyzes the biocompatibility of engineered cartilage tissue scaffolds that are fabricated using new techniques. These hydrogel tissue scaffolds will then be used to deepen our understanding of multiple stimuli in cartilage mechanotransduction.

Specifically, Sarah uses methods such as biochemistry, histology, and cell live-dead assay to characterize the seeded chondrocytes in various hydrogel tissue scaffolds.


Sarah Lee joined the Micro/Nanofluidics Laboratory in May of 2007. She is currently a junior and is working on her B.S. degree in Biological and Environmental Engineering with a minor in Biomedical Engineering.
