Cell and Biomolecular Engineering

Research programs in this area tackle a variety of problems in biomedicine and biotechnology. Our thematic focus is to understand and manipulate biological molecules and cells as parts of natural or built systems, bringing to bear methods and principles from engineering as well as the life sciences. Systems of interest encompass: engineered tissues relevant to human disease, microbial hosts for production of value added biomolecules, and smart biopolymer-based functional microparticles for biosensing and tissue engineering.
