Fundamental knowledge and capabilities developed by cellular engineering scientists allows us to move beyond toward systematic mechanisms for predictable modulation of cell proliferation, migration, communication, and the production of small molecules and biologics. Modern biomedical science includes Systems Biology and Synthetic Biology, two new and complementary fields that constitute the basis of innovation. In this course, students will learn about the foundational technologies and theory behind engineering biology. Students will study strategies for engineering cellular and molecular systems as well as, will explore current and future applications for synthetic biology and system biology approaches. Students will study how to build novel synthetic biological systems that solve practical biomedical problems. They will incorporate elements from many different disciplines including chemistry, biology, mathematics, physics and engineering.
