Research Assistant Professor (BME)

  • Primary Appointment Research Assistant Professor, Biomedical Engineering
  • Education Ph.D. Medical Sciences, KULeuven, Leuven, Belgium
    M.S. Physical Education and Kinesiology, Leuven, Belgium
  • Areas of Interest Tissue repair and regeneration, wound healing biomechanics, biomimetic tissue-on-chip models, skeletal organoid biology, reverse tissue engineering, fibrosis.
  • Research Areas Prof. Eyckmans’s research program aims to understands the mechanical and biochemical mechanisms that drive tissue repair (scarring) versus tissue regeneration in response to injury. Through an interdisciplinary approach combining microfabrication, nanotechnology and molecular biology, his group develops novel biomimetic models to study wound closure and extracellular matrix remodeling of soft (skin, tendon, ligament) and mineralized (bone, teeth) tissues. Ultimately, the goal is to harness tissue repair and regeneration mechanisms to rationally design targeted tissue engineering strategies for the healing of musculoskeletal tissues after injury.
