Our new collaborative project, which is joint with Neda Bagheri, will develop new experimental and computational tools for designing and building robust cell-based therapies. This project was funded in the first round of the NIH’s new synthetic-biology-specific funding mechanisms. Read more here, and a related article released by the Chicago Biomedical Consortium here.
