A key mission of the SB2 program is to actively integrate synthetic biology approaches into other biological research disciplines. We believe that when this happens, new science is unlocked and new tools and application spaces for biotechnology are created. To realize this goal, the SB2 Program brings together a diverse group of faculty and facilitates their collaboration in education and research.

Our faculty are divided into two thematic categories:

TPT faculty are mostly engaged in advancing the foundations of synthetic biology, both theoretical and experimental, while APPS faculty are seeking to explore their application in a wide array of biological and biomedical problems.
