$25M NSF center established to investigate the creation of biological machines
Date:2/22/2010

phisticated biological machines.

"Critical to the successful design of engineered cellular systems is a fundamental understanding of interactions between cells and their environment, their control by biochemical and mechanical cues, and the coordinated behavior of functional biological machines," said Gang Bao, the Robert A. Milton Chair in Biomedical Engineering in the Wallace H. Coulter Department of Biomedical Engineering at Georgia Tech and Emory University.

Bao will coordinate the Center's four research areas, which include:

  • Investigating how individual cells integrate the various biological, biochemical and physical cues from their environments to determine their ultimate states and biological behaviors.
  • Determining the emergent behaviors and interactions of cell clusters, including the transition from single cell to multi-cell behavior, the nature of communication between cells, and how this leads to functional coordination among neighboring cells and cell populations.
  • Creating and characterizing simple cellular machines that perform increasingly complex tasks, such as sensing, information processing, protein expression and transport.
  • Developing enabling technologies to ensure the goals of the other three areas can be met.

Also contributing to the Center's research efforts are Georgia Tech researchers Yuhong Fan, an assistant professor in the School of Biology; Andrs Garca, a professor in the Woodruff School of Mechanical Engineering; and Melissa Kemp, Todd McDevitt and Manu Platt, all assistant professors in the Wallace H. Coulter Department of Biomedical Engineering at Georgia Tech and Emory University. Young-sup Yoon, an associate professor of cardiology at the Emory University School of Medicine; and Steve Stice, professor and director of the Regenerative Bioscience Center at the University of Georgia and a Georgia Research Alliance Eminent Scholar, will participate in the EBICS Center as member
