Muhammad Zaman is a member of the Boston University Global Development Policy Center Faculty Steering Committee and a Professor of Biomedical Engineering at Boston University.
His research focuses on the interface of cell biology, mechanics, systems biology and medicine. He is interested in understanding and decoupling the integrated chemical, biological and mechanical basis of tumor invasion that precedes metastasis. He utilize computational and experimental tools rooted in cell biology, chemistry, mechanics and imaging to ask how cells process external information and use it to develop specific responses in native like 3D environments. The work is also aimed at developing multi-scale models, integrating both first principle and data driven approaches to quantify cell signaling, adhesion and motion in 3D environments.
