THE DAVIS LAB

Our laboratory opened its doors in June 2006 at Emory University as part of the joint Biomedical Engineering program at Emory University School of Medicine and Georgia Institute of Technology. Dr. Davis is a professor in both the Wallace H. Coulter Department of Biomedical Engineering and the Division of Cardiology at Emory University School of Medicine.

Congratulations to Kenneth for being selected
as an ARCS scholar!

He is the fourth ARCS scholar in the Davis lab.

 

OUR RESEARCH FOCUS

Currently, the only major treatment for heart failure is transplantation. However, it is estimated that less than 30% of patients survive to receive their new hearts. The local cell death following myocardial infarction plays a major role in the progression of cardiac dysfunction. Our laboratory focuses on various aspects of cardiac regeneration and preservation using molecular-based and biomaterials-based approaches to restoring function after cardiac injury.

 

BIOPRINTING

We are engineering

3D cellular constructs for the heart

EXOSOME THERAPY

We are developing nanoscale therapies for cardiac repair

BIOMATERIALS

We are designing  biomaterials for stem cell delivery to the heart 

BEATING HEART MIMETICS

We are developing

cardiac patches and in vitro heart models that mimic muscle movement

CARDIAC CELL PROFILING

We are examining cell diversity and performance at the  molecular level, using bioinformatics
