We are part of both the interdisciplinary Bioinspired Institute and the Department of Biomedical and Chemical Engineering in the College of Engineering and Computer Science. The lab combines experimental and computational approaches to study mechanobiology and to apply mechanobiology in tissue engineering and regenerative medicine. We are motivated by the opportunity to improve treatments for individuals with injuries or diseases.

The mission of the Henderson Lab is to provide well-balanced, high quality education and mentoring for undergraduate, graduate, and postdoctoral trainees while contributing to biomedical knowledge and technology through excellence and distinction in research, teaching, and service in the fields of biomechanics, mechanobiology, and tissue engineering.
