Sharon Gerecht, PhD

Paul M. Gross Distinguished Professor of Bioengineering
Duke University

Primary Research:

Our lab studies how the microenvironment regulates cellular responses, with the long-term goal of developing countermeasures and therapeutics. We develop biomaterials and culture systems to emulate mechanical and physical stressors toward understanding tissue function, reliance, and homeostasis. We also use that information to uncover pathways in injury and disease development to guide tissue healing and regeneration. Specifically, we focus on blood vessels and their multifaceted roles in tissue performance, aging, and disease.
