Dongeun Dan Huh, Ph.D., is the Wilf Family Term Chair and Assistant Professor of Bioengineering at the University of Pennsylvania and Principal Investigator of BIOLines, the Biologically Inspired Engineering Systems Laboratory.
Huh’s laboratory aims to develop innovative bioengineering tools and technologies using biologically inspired design principles and micro/nanoengineering approaches to improve human health and promote environmental sustainability. Huh’s research focuses primarily on developing i) microengineered biomimetic models of human organs (organs-on-chips), ii) self-assembled tissue/organ scaffolds, iii) cell-based self-regulating “smart” biomedical devices, and iv) efficient biomimetic transport systems. Huh explores the use of these bioinspired engineering systems for a variety of biomedical, pharmaceutical, and environmental applications.
