Welcome to the Kaur Lab in the Department of Chemistry at Howard University
Our research is exploring the answers to fundamental questions about how biomaterials, nanotechnology, and other advanced technologies interact with the stem cells and immune system, along with projects aimed at better treatments for autoimmune diseases and cancerous conditions.
We bring together basic science, engineering and immunology to help fight disease and train the next generation of scientists.
We are currently working on these projects:
1. Investigating the impact of Biomaterials on Stem Cells
2. Designing new biomaterials to better control the specific features of immune response
3. Circulating Extracellular vesicles in autoimmune diseases for early diagnosis
4. Extracellular vesicles as an immunomodulator (for treatment/cure) in autoimmune diseases
