Shen Lab

Research

 

 Dr. Shen's research group aims to develop biologically inspired in vitro platforms to capture the scale of cell signaling in tissue microenvironments from subcellular to tissue levels, and discover novel therapeutics for human diseases. We are particularly interested in developing integrated techniques for subcellular biosensing and modulation of T cell activation, and creating microfabricated models of cancer microenvironments. Our goal is to identify new targets and critical pathways in driving disease and intervention, and translate our discoveries into applications for immune and cancer therapeutics, cancer biomarker/drug development, and regenerative medicine.
