The Precision Biomaterials IRT will integrate biomaterials design with drug and cell-based technologies to engineer and validate new combinational health care products and translate clinical needs into therapies, spanning from molecular design to medical product design. Through this materials-centric approach, we will provide next-generation, disruptive therapeutic interventions for a broad spectrum of diseases with unmet medical needs. This IRT is one of the six interdisciplinary research themes initiated by the College of Engineering & Applied Science for faculty researchers.
