Leight Laboratory

The laboratory of Dr. Jennifer Leight began in the fall of 2014 when she accepted a position as assistant professor in the Department of Biomedical Engineering. The Leight Lab focuses on the development of a fluorescent peptide model to measure matrix metalloproteinase (MMP) activity in 3D cellular microenvironments. Read more about Dr. Leight's research or check out her publications below!

The Leight Lab is a great place for the engineer interested in biomedical engineering applications in the field of medicine, the undergraduate looking for research experience, or the graduate student seeking a project thesis. For questions about research positions in the Leight Lab contact Dr. Leight at leight.1@osu.edu.
