Synthetic Biology

The lab's goal is to make biology easy to engineer. Our research is largely student-initiated and driven. Students have joined the lab from a wide-range of backgrounds, including biology, chemistry, english, mathematics, physics, and all fields of engineering. Reading our dissertations and research papers is a great way to learn about the sort of work that the lab has been able to support, and provides good background and introductory materials as well as glimpses of future ideas and directions. You'll find that the lab has a strong interest in foundational technology development, that we pursue both experimental and theoretical work, and that we are interested in the applications of biological technologies too. If you are searching for a passionate place to work on a new (or old) research idea that's relevant to synthetic biology then we would very much like to hear from you.
