Basic building blocks and organizational structures of human life

Engineering solutions to human health challenges through creating new therapeutics and modifying biological functions requires understanding how to design and modify biological systems at each of these levels of complexity, as well as understanding how these biological systems interact with natural and synthetic materials.

BU faculty collaborate broadly to apply expertise to problems in multiple organ systems and understanding how the mechanical environment is important for biological function.  We also take advantage of systems and synthetic biology tools, bioimaging technologies, new biomaterials, and computational modeling and data science approaches to address these fundamental biomedical engineering challenges.
