Huh's laboratory aims to develop innovative bioengineering tools and technologiesof biomedical, pharmaceutical, and environmental applications. using biologically inspired design principles and micro/nanoengineering approaches to improve human health and promote environmental sustainability. Huh's research focuses primarily on developing i) microengineered biomimetic models of human organs (organs-on-chips), ii) self-assembled tissue/organ scaffolds, iii) cell-based self-regulating "smart" biomedical devices, and iv) efficient biomimetic transport systems. The laboratory explores the use of these bioinspired engineering systems for a variety
