About the Department/Section/Group

The Habib lab works at the intersection of stem cell biology, biomaterials, and tissue engineering. We investigate how tissues form in health and disease, and from this, develop technologies for repairing tissue and counteracting tumour growth.   For example, our recent novel bandage for bone repair resulted in a patent, over 107 news articles and a televised coverage in CBS-News.   We are looking for a motivated lab technician to run day-to-day lab operations and participate and support team members in our research projects.
