Molecular, Cellular, & Tissue Engineering
Modern recombinant DNA expression technologies, by definition, challenge cells to engage in unnatural acts; specifically, the production of new types and large quantities of proteins for which the cells have not evolved.
The drug discovery process is expensive and often inefficient. With the emergence of genomic and proteomic information, the growth of critical molecular targets is rapid.
Stem cells are defined by their capacities for self-renewal and differentiation into one or more cell lineages, and these processes are regulated by signals from the stem cell microenvironment, or niche, in various tissues throughout organismal de
Bacterial quorum sensing offers an interesting viewpoint from which to study and control cell phenotype.
