What is it about?

The term “engineering cell systems” can be used to describe the application of engineering principles to the understanding of biological systems, solve biological problems, and ultimately contribute to the translation of new therapeutic approaches into clinical practice.

Why is it important?

Eventually, for the widespread use of stem cells in biomedical applications, it will be essential to recognize the complexity and the dynamics of stem cell systems, and therefore, the application of engineering principles will become crucial to the understanding of important biological questions, ranging from the cell level to the whole organism.


The 'Engineering Cell Systems' concept is based on truly interdisciplinary methodologies and integrates contributions from multiple scientific and technological fields.
