The overall objective is to enhance our ability to address overarching challenges in the areas of BioSensing, BioActuation, BioNanotechnology, Cancer, and Mechanobiology. Highly interdisciplinary in nature, the 2012 Summer Institute will offer faculty expertise from biology, engineering, materials science, and nanotechnology through a combination of lectures and hands-on lab experiences.

Specific Objectives:

  1. Train next generation researchers in both engineering and biology through lectures and hands-on lab experiences
  2. Establish international multi-lateral and multi-disciplinary collaborative research programs

Who should Apply?

The Summer Institute is open to senior undergraduates, graduate students, post docs, and faculty members from engineering, physical sciences, and biological sciences who are interested in state-of-the-art interdisciplinary research at the intersection of engineering and biology.
