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.

Bio-Integrated Electronics

Bio-integrated electronic systems represent breakthrough technologies that bridge the gap between biological systems and existing electronics technology. The goal is to develop unheard of sensing, diagnostic and control systems to improve healthcare outcomes.

Bio-Inspired Energy Science

Bio-Inspired Energy Science

Nature provides researchers with a rich source of inspiration for the design of entirely new classes of highly functional materials that can be applied to energy science.

The development of synthetic soft materials that emulate fundamental properties of cells, extracellular matrices and tissues in the context of energy use and transduction is one important goal in this area of research.
