Description

Our project applies synthetic biology as a tool to discover and test the fundamental rules underpinning complex biological systems broadly across multiple length and time scales. This understanding will inform quantitative measurements, theoretical modeling, and rational design of biological systems.

We are seeking independent, motivated individuals with backgrounds across the physical, engineering, chemical, and biological disciplines to contribute to our collaborative, interdisciplinary project.
