The Ameer Research Lab, part of the Biomedical Engineering Department, is located on the third floor of the Technological Institute of Northwestern University, right next to the lake on the beautiful Evanston campus.

In our research, we investigate novel in vivo (in the body) as well as ex vivo (out of the body) approaches to assess, replace and/or regenerate tissue function. Towards this goal, we are working on projects that integrate fundamental principles from the areas of biomaterials, tissue engineering, stem cell engineering, drug and gene delivery and biotechnology
