The Kutys Lab develops and applies biomimetic human tissue models that incorporate three-dimensional organotypic architectures and permit the study of human tissue development, regeneration, and pathogenesis with high resolution and biological control. Combining these models with cellular and molecular technologies, a major focus of the laboratory is gaining mechanistic understanding of the orchestration of vascular morphogenesis and fate specification by endothelial mechanotransduction at cell-cell and cell-extracellular matrix interfaces.
