Leach’s research focuses on the design of biomaterials and the application of stimuli to regulate cell function to engineer replacement or model tissues. The lab uses various materials, mechanical stimulation and advanced manufacturing methods to generate platforms with engineered properties that meet the functional and biological demands of native tissue. He and his team aim to discover new strategies for accelerating the repair and regeneration of lost or diseased tissues and translate these findings to help animal and human patients in need.
