Major research interest in the Sant laboratory is to engineer three-dimensional disease microenvironments and organoids by developing novel biomaterials- and micro-/nanotechnology-based approaches. Our disease focus include breast cancer and ectopic calcifications . The major goals are: 1) to elucidate molecular mechanisms by which microenvironmental factors drive disease progression; and 2) to design therapeutic strategies to halt such progression at early stage.
