Welcome to the Biomaterials & Nanomedicine Lab


The laboratory was established in 2011 and is focused in understanding fundamental studies and applied research in the world of biomaterials. Specifically, our research involves design, fabrication and evaluation of novel biodegradable materials for tissue regeneration, controlled drug delivery, medical implants and devices. We actively explore medical applications of nanomaterials and nanotechnology.


The 10 campuses of the University of California open their doors to all who work hard and dream big. Through its teaching, research and public service, UC drives California's economy and leads the world in new directions. UC Riverside offers a wide range of opportunities for graduate study and research. As the fastest growing university in the University of California system we have constructed new, state-of-the-art buildings and developed new graduate programs to provide unprecedented opportunities for our graduate students.

October 2016. Cytocompatibility and early inflammatory response of human endothelial cells in direct culture with Mg-Zn-Sr alloys. Crystalline Mg-Zinc (Zn)-Strontium (Sr) ternary alloys consist of elements naturally present in the human body and provide attractive mechanical and biodegradable properties for a variety of biomedical applications. The first objective of this study was to investigate the degradation and cytocompatibility of four Mg-4Zn-xSr alloys (x = 0.15, 0.5, 1.0, 1.5 wt%; designated as ZSr41A, B, C, and D respectively) in the direct culture with human umbilical vein endothelial cells (HUVEC) in vitro. The second objective was ...
