Areas of Research
Dr. Sen is developing bioreactor-based protocols to scale-up the production of adult stem cell populations and their differentiated progeny for use in tissue repair and regeneration strategies. Applications of this work include the development of new cell-based therapies for the treatment of a variety of medical conditions, including musculoskeletal disorders (e.g. cartilage damage), blood vessel damage (e.g. aneurysms) and neurodegenerative conditions (e.g. Parkinson’s disease). He is also interested in utilizing microorganisms to develop applications of relevance to industry. Current projects in this area include better understanding how microbial biofilms evolve in the presence of flow within porous media, developing enzyme based technologies to improve hydrocarbon recovery, biofiltration of air pollutants and developing new platforms for the production of recombinant proteins.
