Regenerative Medicine

Our institute's research in regenerative medicine seeks to direct and enhance the body's own repair mechanisms to grow new functional tissues. Advancing the field requires interdisciplinary research with contributions from the life, physical and engineering sciences.

Targeted Nanotherapeutics

Nanotherapeutics combines chemistry, materials science and medicine to rationally engineer nanosized structures with the ability to influence cell fate and direct biology during the treatment of disease.

Advanced Materials

Advanced Materials

The design and synthesis of advanced materials is a core capability that underlies all of the investigative areas at SQI. By addressing experimental needs across a range of research areas, SQI is in a prime position to create cutting-edge materials that enable development of new, highly functional materials.

Electroactive Biomaterials

Electroactive biomaterials represent breakthrough technologies that can interact safely with biological systems while maintaining electrical functionality. This investigative area covers materials with a wide range of physical properties for applications relevant to human health.
