Growth Factor Transport Modeling

A major thrust of research of the Albro Lab is the development of sophisticated computational models to describe the delivery of key anabolic growth factors during the development of engineered musculoskeletal tissues. These novel frameworks can be used to optimize growth factor delivery strategies to allow for sufficient ECM biosynthesis during development while mitigating pathogenic effects of excessive growth factor activity that currently plague regenerative medicine platforms.
