Faculty in ISBET

ISBET brings together multiple faculty at Virginia Tech and at Wake Forest University. These faculty members have pioneered several enabling technologies that can harness the synergy between systems biology and tissue engineering. These technologies include assembly of layered tissue architectures, comprehensive and sensitive molecular profiling technologies, molecular and cellular imaging at the nanoscale, microfluidic systems, translational medicine based on animal models, and computational mining and modeling of massive systems biology datasets.
