Lauren Flynn

Profile and Department: Associate Professor, Chemical & Biochemical Engineering, Western University

Research Interests:

Dr. Flynn's research program is focused on the development of new cell-based regenerative strategies with adipose-derived stem cells (ASCs) for soft tissue engineering applications. Her lab is designing systems to expand human ASCs in a clinically-relevant manner, while
maintaining their capacity to proliferate and differentiate along multiple lineages. In addition, the team is also engineering novel bioscaffolds derived from the extracellular matrix (ECM) of both human and animal tissues, and is working to understand the role of tissue-specific cell-matrix interactions in mediating ASC behavior, with a particular focus on adipogenesis and angiogenesis. Dr. Flynn's research is highly interdisciplinary, and she is also working with collaborators on new approaches with ASCs for cardiovascular, cartilage, and bone tissue engineering
