The Weaver Lab

Biomaterials and Immune Engineering

The Weaver Lab’s research program centers on biomaterials-based strategies for immunoengineering and translatable cell-based therapies. The main thrusts of the lab’s work include engineering transplant sites for cell-based therapies, device design for translatable and immunoisolated cell transplantation, and developing strategies to induce tolerance toward transplanted tissue.
