Biological function is governed by highly integrated networks that exhibit nonlinear dynamics at all biochemical/molecular, cellular, and organismal levels. We believe that engineering principles can be employed to better understand, predict, and control complex biological functions, and that these principles need to be informed by biology.

The Bagheri Lab operates at the evolving interface between engineering and biology, promoting a diverse, creative research environment consisting of engineers and basic scientists that share the common mission of advancing medicine and biology. Through this collective effort, we aim to identify design principles that underlie complex biological function, and modulate extrinsic factors to optimize therapeutic interventions.
