Research Themes


Our faculty works in a wide range of areas, conducting research in programs ranging from fundamental understanding to translational work.


Current areas of focus fall into 3 main research themes:

Cellular & Molecular Engineering

  1. Regenerative medicine
  2. Synthetic biology
  3. Immune-engineering


Imaging & Computational Biology

  1. AI & multiscale imaging
  2. Bioinformatics/systems biology
  3. Computational modeling & automation


Human Interfacing Devices

  1. Therapeutic delivery systems & nanodevices
  2. Bionics & bio-sensors
  3. Biomaterials
  4. Biomechanics/Injury prevention


We are now building capacity to increase research opportunities in areas of global importance including molecular and cellular engineering and synthetic biology, genomics and nano-devices, immune-engineering and advanced biomaterials, regenerative medicine, artificial intelligence and simulation systems with biomedical application, visualization and imaging from nanomolecular to physiological scales.
