Welcome to the Lin Research Group in the Department of Biomedical Engineering at Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis (IUPUI). The lab is located adjacent to Indiana University School of Medicine at Indianapolis, the capital city of the State of Indiana. We are part of the Purdue University academic system and are affiliated with Indiana University Simon Comprehensive Cancer Center and Indiana Center for Diabetes & Metabolic diseases.
Our research focuses on designing multifunctional polymeric biomaterials, particularly hydrogels, with spatiotemporally tunable physicochemical properties to mimic the extracellular matrix (ECM). We are particularly interested in developing dynamic hydrogels for studying cell-matrix interactions in the tumor microenvironment. We have also developed several innovative hydrogel chemistries for fabricating unique hydrogels suitable for releasing therapeutically relevant agents and for delivering adult, stem, and progenitor cells for tissue engineering and regenerative medicine applications.
Postdoc & PhD student positions available. If you are interested in joining us, please send your inquiry to Prof. Lin.
