We partner with Professor David Hoelzle (AME) in the development of microfluidic culture devices for developing organs. We collaborate with Professor Mark Alber (ACMS) in the development of novel computational approaches toward studying the biophysics of multicellular systems. We also synergize with Dr. Jun Li (ACMS) in the development of novel bioinformatic approaches applied to cell and organ culture optimization problems as well as genomic/proteomic studies. Toward the development of novel anti-cancer drugs, we have an active collaboration with Dr. Siyuan Zhang (Biology) and Dr. Brandon Ashfeld (Chemistry).
