We apply engineering principles to study the behavior of living cells. That is, we use a combination of mathematical modeling, quantitative experimentation, together with the tools of biochemistry and molecular cell biology to better understand the relationship between cell function and the physical and molecular properties of cells and their surroundings. The field is often called cellular bioengineering or cellular engineering.
