Research Interests

The Biomechanics of Growth and Remodeling Lab (BG&R), led by PI Kristin S. Miller, uses a combined experimental and computational approach to better understand, describe, and predict the dynamics of extracellular matrix remodeling in response to various biochemomechanical stimuli including normal processes (e.g., aging and pregnancy), disease, and injury. To this end, our research utilizes models systems with varying restraints on regenerative capability (postnatal development, pregnancy, postpartum, and aging) to define the dynamics of structure-function homeostasis to prevent maladaptive remodeling, improve adult response to injury, and advance tissue engineering strategies.
