Producing New Biological Molecules

  • Fabrication of composites and of man-made and cell-synthesized materials
  • Using living cells for grafts during repair of injury and as scaffolding for in-vivo tissue growth
  • Using combinatorial chemistry to make vast libraries of potential pharmaceutical candidates
  • Discovery of new drugs through random mutation of cells and molecules, such as phage display on bacterial surfaces
