Interdisciplinary Modules

The major intellectual theme of EBICS is the integration of concepts from the applied fields of tissue engineering, systems biology, and synthetic biology to: a) yield new analytical insights into emergent behaviors of integrated cellular systems and b) use this analytical framework as the basis to design and build new kinds of biological machines. Each of the applied fields of EBICS research integrates approaches from several established engineering and science disciplines and as a result EBICS research is highly interdisciplinary in nature. Therefore to bridge disciplinary gaps experienced by students from disparate engineering and science backgrounds we have created a spectrum of activities geared to provide continuing education for EBICS undergraduates, graduate students and postdocs.

To address potential gaps in technical knowledge across disparate fields, the EBICS Education team posts lectures from EBICS faculty below. We will continue to update the series of lectures going forward.
