Cellular Engineering Focus Area

What is Cellular Engineering?

Cellular Engineering involves the application of engineering principles to problems in cellular and molecular biology, particularly as they relate to human health. The goal of this focus area is to equip students with the quantitative tools necessary to understand, manipulate, and control cellular and sub-cellular processes for a range of biomedical applications, including those related to stem cells, tissue engineering, and regenerative medicine.
