WORKING ACROSS SCALES
Our Faculty work in a wide range of research areas from the micro to the macros of human physiology. Currently, we focus on three main pillars.
CELLULAR & MOLECULAR ENGINEERING
Imagine receiving a prescription for a cell instead of a drug. Or being able to train a person’s immune system to be stronger, fitter. From regenerative medicine to synthetic biology, this is the promise of Cellular & Molecular Engineering.
IMAGING & COMPUTATIONAL BIOLOGY
There is no shortage of data in this world. Here is where that data goes to work, solving the challenges of medicine using powerful digital tools. This pillar includes AI, Bioinformatics, Computational Modeling & Automation.
HUMAN INTERFACING DEVICES
Welcome to the frontier of MedTech. From therapeutic delivery systems and nanodevices to bionics and bio-sensors, this theme is where we get to make technology speak to human biology.
