The Mata Lab

Nature has evolved to grow and heal sophisticated structures through the assembly of multiple types of molecular building blocks. As the need for more efficient regenerative solutions increases, it is essential to develop approaches that can more accurately recreate these complex biological systems.

We work at the interface of materials science, structural biology, bioengineering, and medicine to develop materials and fabrication processes that can bridge the gap between molecular design and macroscopic functionality.

We focus on developing technologies to address major healthcare challenges such as improving the regeneration of tissues and organs, enhancing the way drugs and therapies are developed, and advancing our understanding of diseases.
