Benam Lab

Our lab applies a multidisciplinary approach to design and develop bio-inspired technologies that enable us to elucidate cellular and molecular mechanisms that govern tissue pathology or offer protection during lung injury. Our research lies at the intersection of respiratory medicine, immuno-microbiology, tissue engineering, and systems and synthetic biology. Ultimately, our goal is to discover novel druggable targets and personalized diagnostics using microengineered systems that recreate complex human organ pathophysiology in vitro.
