The Roberts group, led by Susan C. Roberts, focuses on cellular and metabolic engineering in both mammalian and plant cell cultures. In our approach, we exploit metabolic pathways through characterization techniques and redirection of metabolism to optimize cellular processes for a variety of applications.
Research is focused in two main areas:
Researchers in our laboratory come from various disciplines with backgrounds in chemical engineering, bioengineering, molecular and cellular biology, and plant biology.
We acknowledge our funding sources
