Research Activities/Interests:
Dr. Xie’s research interests center on the synthesis, surface modification, self-assembly of materials at nano- and/or microscale to address problems in the field of tissue engineering, regenerative medicine and drug/gene delivery. Specifically, we are interested in use of nano-structured materials together with signaling molecules to regulate cell/stem cell behaviors for regenerating various types of tissues including tendon-to-bone insertion site, cartilage, bone, skin, cardiac muscle, and nerve. We are also interested in developing nanofibrous materials as local drug delivery devices for prevention of surgical site infection.
