Amish Asthana, PhD
Instructor of Medicine, Wake Forest School of Medicine, Winston-Salem, USA
Dr. Asthana is an Instructor in the Department of General Surgery at Wake Forest Institute for Regenerative Medicine. His background uniquely combines multidisciplinary training in cell biology, biomaterials, microfabrication and 3D microphysiological platform development for regenerative medicine as well as drug screening and toxicological applications. His current research is focused on pancreatic and kidney tissue engineering, specifically using decellularized human extracellular matrix (dECM) for the development of an organ-specific physiomimetic cellular niche in microphysiological systems (MPS; or organ-on-a chip), 3D bioprinted- and bioreactor-based platforms.
