Areas of Focus

Regenerative Medicine & Tissue Engineering
Regenerative medicine and tissue engineering are rapidly growing fields of biomedicine that seek to create substitute tissues and organs to repair or replace those damaged by injury, illness, aging, or congenital anomaly.
Reconstructive Surgery
Reconstructive surgery is the use of surgery to restore the form and function of the body and the anatomy or functional body part to normal.
Bioinformatics is an interdisciplinary field that develops and improves on methods for storing, retrieving, organizing and analyzing biological data. This field includes the development of software tools to generate useful biological knowledge.
Human Performance
Optimizing human performance is defined as the process of applying knowledge, skills and emerging technologies to improve and preserve the capabilities of individuals to execute essential tasks.
Vision Restoration
The development of novel therapies for the prevention and treatment of vision impairment and loss through the use of regenerative medicine research and translation, tissue engineering, cell therapy, gene therapy, neuroprosthetics and transplantation.
Traumatic Brain Injury
Pittsburgh TEAM TBI (Targeted ‎Evaluation, Action, Monitoring of Traumatic Brain Injury) is a research program to conduct multiple monitored clinical interventions for TBI patients.
