The Mooney lab focuses on making therapies more effective and practical. Our research involves exploiting our understanding of cell and molecular biology to design biomaterials that effect and potentiate specific cell functions. The lab members consist of post-doctoral fellows, graduate and undergraduate students, research fellows, and visiting scholars from diverse academic backgrounds. For more information, please visit our publications page, and for any inquiries, please visit our contact page.
Congrats to Theresa on her recent publication which shows that cytokines coupled to gold nanoparticles can be used to direct macrophage polarization following muscle injury in vivo. Check it out here: Functional muscle recovery with nanoparticle-directed M2 macrophage polarization in mice.
Congrats to recent lab alumnus Max and team on their recent publications in Biomaterials and PNAS, which explore the effects on the microenvironmental material properties on various cells' transcriptional programs. Check them out here:
