Dr. Morris heads the PRecision Immune MicroEnvironments (PRIME) Lab, which works at the intersection of biomaterials engineering, immunology, and drug delivery.The PRIME lab focuses on using engineered materials as platforms to: study immunology, diagnose disease, and develop therapeutics. We are interested in the interface between materials and living systems. In particular, we are interested in: i) developing materials to ask questions about immune function; ii) creating programmable materials / cell-material constructs to enable responses to cues from the environment; and iii) engineering materials for applications in regenerative medicine. Our long-term vision is to develop non-invasive systems for monitoring and manipulating immunity within tissues.
