Research and Expertise

  • Research Interests

    Cellular and tissue engineering
    Cell-material interactions
    Drug delivery systems including micro- and nanoparticles
    Effects of biomechanical and biochemical factors on vascular cells
    Injectable hydrogels for drug delivery applications
    Multifunctional nanoparticles for cancer therapy

  • Expertise

    Dr. Nguyen is involved with both basic research and applied sciences. Her basic research projects focus on investigating vascular cell responses to environmental factors such as biomechanical (shear stress and cyclic strain), biochemical factors (growth factors and glucose), and biomaterials (biodegradable polymers). These studies will enhance our knowledge about the roles of environmental factors in vascular biology and in the pathogenesis of vascular disorders.  Her applied science research projects involve with the development of new strategies and novel biodegradable scaffolds for tissue engineering applications as well as formulation and characterization of new drug delivery systems such as multifunctional nanoparticles for treatments of various diseases including cardiovascular diseases and cancer.

    Her research projects expose students to a broad range of techniques and strategies in molecular biology, cell biology, and drug delivery as well as cellular and tissue engineering. Her primary research goal is to mimic nature so that the man-made devices possess characteristics of the living systems to have better therapeutic benefits and to reduce adverse reactions or side effects. Her primary educational goal is to train students, who will be experts in cellular and tissue engineering research, in the advanced scientific skills necessary for a career in academia or industry.
