Penn State’s Pritchard Lab merges the study of biomedical engineering and biological evolution. Led by Dr. Justin Pritchard, the lab’s research team uses engineering design to build cell systems, then they test their ability to control and understand the way populations of cells evolve. The team of scientists combine cell engineered models and quantitative experiments to better understand the design principles of successful small molecule therapy. Learn more.
Led by Dr. Cheng Dong, Penn State’s Department of Biomedical Engineering is one of the fastest growing departments within in the university’s College of Engineering. Our curriculum is built upon the apex of engineering, medicine, healthcare policy and biological discovery. We prepare our students to become future leaders in the areas of medical device design, instrumentation, medical imaging, healthcare management, biomedical research and academia.
The Huck Institutes at Penn State’s University Park campus catalyze and facilitate excellence in interdisciplinary research and education in the life sciences at Penn State, preparing students for successful careers and encouraging new perspectives across disciplinary boundaries.
