Bioengineer builds molecular ‘switch’ to reprogram control pathways in cells

James Collins, College of Engineering

A Stanford University bioengineer has helped develop a technology that can tweak the control systems that regulate the inner workings of cells, pointing the way toward future medical interventions that could switch off diseased states or turn on healthy processes…

Expert quote:

“It shows that we don’t need to start from scratch. We can achieve advances by harnessing components that we already have.”
