Nathaniel Huebsch

Biomedical Engineering

Assistant Professor

Research

Professor Huebsch's research focus is in basic and translational stem cell mechanobiology, with specific focus on hydrogels to control cell-mediated tissue repair, and 3-D iPSC-based heart-in-a-dish models to study the influence of mechanical loading and genetics on arrhythmia and contractility.

Biography

Professor Huebsch joined Washington University in St. Louis in January of 2018. Prior to this, he was a senior scientist in the Department of Bioengineering at UC Berkeley and a postdoctoral fellow at the Gladstone Institute of Cardiovascular Disease.
