Matt joined the Elisseeff lab in 2014, bringing expertise in extracellular matrix (ECM) biomaterials for tissue engineering. He discovered that the same pro-regenerative environment generated by ECM biomaterials to encourage tissue healing also enabled the immune system to kill cancer cells. Cancer killing by immune…Read More
