The Hauser Group | Nano Solutions to the World

The Hauser Group is an integrative research group, comprising of accomplished engineers, materials scientists, chemists, biologists, physicists, and computational experts. Our unique blend of talents fosters a multidisciplinary approach, vital for our forward-thinking bioengineering research. Under the mentorship of Professor Charlotte A. E. Hauser, we consistently work towards clear goals. We are proud of our range of peer-reviewed papers, which reflect our dedication to expanding understanding in nanomedicine.

Our biomaterials innovations have attracted substantial press coverage, further emphasizing our influential role in this scientific sector. Moreover, our endeavors are not confined to the laboratory. We actively bridge the gap between research and clinical practice, ensuring that our discoveries have tangible implications in improving patient care.



  • Rationally designed nanomaterials for tissue engineering (chemical synthesis, 3-D bioprinting of organs/tissues, organs-on-a-chip)​
  • Fabrication of ultra-sensitive biomedical sensors (bionic sensors, biomarker detection)
  • Bench-to-bedside regenerative medical applications (cell therapy, stem cells, disease modeling)​

Highlighted research: "3D Printing News Briefs, April 18, 2021: Dyndrite, Carbon, KAUST, Art Institute of Chicago".

18 June, 2021

It’s business and materials for starters in this week’s 3D Printing News Briefs, and then on to 3D printing for cultural heritage. Dyndrite has added two new members to its Developer Council, and Carbon introduced a new material, while KAUST is 3D printing peptide-based hydrogel scaffolds for tissue engineering applications. Finally, a 3D storytelling project at the Art Institute of Chicago could also be a good opportunity for institutional accountability and reconciliation with indigenous communities and artists.
