Research Interests

Prof. Mehta uses biomaterials and microtechnology as tools to create engineered cellular microenvironments in order to study biological problems in the areas of ovarian cancer, breast cancer, and bone marrow stem cells. Her research strengths are in the areas of cancer microenvironments, stem cell engineering, tissue regeneration, microfluidics, biomechanics, biomaterials, tissue engineering, and regenerative medicine. As an Assistant Professor in M.S.E, she plans to leverage these strengths to develop strong collaborations with her colleagues who are working on various facets of materials science, and together make significant contributions in the fields of tissue engineering, regenerative medicine, as well as, drug development and delivery. She is building a research group that emphasizes both fundamental as well as applied research and involves extensive multidisciplinary and interdepartmental collaboration.

Research Areas:

Bio-MEMS and Microfluidics, Bio-Micro Nanotechnology and Molecular Engineering, Biomaterials, Biomechanics, Cancer, Immunology, Molecular and Cellular Biomechanics, Skeletal Orthopaedics, Tissue Engineering and Biomaterials, Tissue Engineering and Regenerative Medicine
