CTE students and faculty have the unique opportunity and the capability to realize the promise of fusing tissue engineering, computational science, and systems biology. CTE faculty have pioneered several fundamental technologies including layered tissue architectures (Rajagopalan), comprehensive and sensitive molecular profiling techniques (Helm), computational mining and modeling of massive datasets (Murali, Heath), dynamic models of cellular processes (Tyson), microfluidic systems (Davalos), toxicological systems (Ehrich), and animal models of disease (Prater). Our group includes a bioethicist (Zallen) who studies social, ethical, and policy issues arising from advances in genetic technologies.

The pages highlight some of the research projects that CTE scientists are involved in. Prospective students can also learn about new research opportunities that are available.
