Cellular Engineering Lab - overview
Welcome to the Cellular Engineering lab at IBM Research.
Principal Investigator: Simone Bianco
The goal of our lab is to understand the principles of cellular self-organization to inform rational design of cells and celluar structures for real world applications, from environmental sensing to industrial strain design, to therapeutics. We use mathematics, physics, engineering and computer science to understand and model how cells regulate and optimize their shape and function in response to specific stimuli, and aim at building automated machines out of living cells.
Our group is affiliated with the Center for Cellular Construction, an NSF-funded Science and Technology Center based at UC San Francisco. This effort involves researchers from IBM Almaden Research Center, UC San Francisco, UC Berkeley, Stanford University, SF State University, and the SF Exploratorium.
