Introduction

We are actively recruiting new graduate students to our group. Please contact us if you are interested.

We use a combination of experimental and computational approaches to reverse engineer multicellular systems. With a mechanistic knowledge of cell-cell communication, we are developing approaches to forward engineer the control of cell signaling other cellular processes.

We focus on the biological regulation of  tissue growth, morphogenesis,  and regeneration to inspire new ways to treat human diseases, such as cancer, and to accelerate wound healing and regeneration.

As systems bioengineers, we utilize a diverse set of tools to characterize biological systems including computational models, microfluidics, microscopy, image processing and data analysis, and genetics.

We are highly inter-disciplinary and have a strong network of collaborators across multiple departments and institutions.
