Molecular and Cellular Engineering

Cornell biomedical engineers implement multidisciplinary and multi-scale strategies that combine advanced high resolution imaging, biophysics, microfabrication, genetic modifications, protein engineering, and quantitative modeling to analyze and manipulate cell and molecular dynamics and interactions. We are motivated by the goal of uncovering the details of normal cell functions and disease processes, improve diagnostics, and develop novel therapeutic approaches. Cornell’s world-class expertise and resources that include the Cornell NanoScale Science & Technology Facility (CNF), the Nanobiotechnology Center, the Biotechnology Resource Center, the Cornell Physical Science Oncology Center, and Cornell’s top-ranked veterinary school and medical school synergize to create an ideal environment for research in Molecular and Cellular Engineering.
