Research

Our research follows our approach to Bioengineering, i.e., the understanding of biological systems through the eyes of an engineer. We are focusing our research on three major directions:

  • biological materials and mechanics;
  • biomolecular and cellular engineering; and
  • biomedical, diagnostics and high throughput screening.


Our projects are diverse and include:

  • Mechanics of disease
  • Tissue engineering, especially concerning 3D and nano-related
  • Biological microfluidics devices, such as fungi, cellular traffic
  • Biological dynamic devices, from whole-organisms, e.g., bacteria to nanodevices, e.g., those based on protein molecular motors
  • Information processing and storage in biological systems
