Cellular and Biomolecular Engineering 

Technical Area 2

Cellular and biomolecular engineering forms the underpinning of molecular medicine. Areas include tissue engineering, the synthesis of biomaterials that modulate tissue responses, development of smart drug delivery matrices, the design of therapeutic macromolecules, gene therapy and many others. At The University of Texas at Austin, we have a core of faculty that has established an outstanding record of scientific accomplishment and technological innovation. Several successful companies have sprung from research conducted by University of Texas at Austin's biomedical engineering faculty, including Pharmacyclics, Therasense and Focal, among othersl.
