Research Interests:The Garcia Lab research activities focus on biomolecular, cellular, and tissue engineering strategies to direct cell function for biomaterial and regenerative medicine applications. These integrated strategies provide fundamental insights into mechanisms regulating cell-material interactions and constitute novel approaches to the engineering of bioactive materials for enhanced tissue repair. I am interested in looking at how mechanical and biological cues promote cell proliferation, spreading and differentiation. I hope the outcome of my research will assist work in regenerating skeletal muscle for patients suffering from volumetric muscle loss.
