Welcome to the ImmunoEngineering Lab at Vanderbilt!

Driven by the knowledge that the immune system is at the root of nearly every disease, our group is working at the interface of engineering and immunology to improve human health. Our mission is to cure, treat, or prevent disease through the rational design of molecularly engineered materials that interrogate the immune system in a defined and specific manner. By bringing together expertise in polymer science, nanotechnology and immunobiology while fostering cross-disciplinary and translational collaborations, we are innovating biomaterials and drug delivery strategies to empower the next generation of vaccines and immunotherapeutics.
