Research Interests

"Research in the lab is interdisciplinary and focuses on the dynamic nature of the extracellular matrix, the milieu that surrounds the cells, and contributes to their shape, locomotion, gene expression, and every aspect of their behavior...To study these dynamic molecules we use automated microscopes and fluorescent probes to perform time-lapse imaging of avian developmental events and the role of the ECM in these events."

Research Interests

Professor Spencer and her research team are designing, synthesizing, and developing novel biomaterials for the repair and replacement of mineralized tissues. Under in vivo conditions, failure of a repair or replacement generally begins at the biomaterial/tissue interface and thus, a key aspect of our work is understanding the fundamental phenomena that control biological interactions at material interfaces.
