Biological Applications

The Business of Life

Understanding organic materials and life at its smallest scale, where proteins and enzymes govern the workings of organisms on the large scale, is enabled by micro- and nanotechnology – leading to areas such as custom design of precisely targeted drugs and therapies, as well as improved biointerfaces between the computational/electronic/analytical and the living worlds. This is an area in which the presence of the Singh Center at the University of Pennsylvania is particularly appropriate, given the University’s preeminence in the most sophisticated and ground-breaking biological, medical, and pharmacological research, and emphasis on interdisciplinary collaboration and translational outcomes that Penn values so highly.
