Research with Impact

SBME Research tackles health and healthcare challenges across scales from the molecular to the macro level of human physiology. With advances in regenerative medicine, imaging, AI, cellular engineering and more, we no longer have to engineer around biology, but with it.

Research Themes

cellular & molecular engineering

imaging & computational biology

human interfacing devices

We are continually building out opportunities for cutting-edge research in areas of global importance. From cellular engineering and synthetic biology, to genomics and nano-devices, to immune engineering and regenerative medicine, SBME is a hub for advancement across three broad research themes.
