The Center for Cell Control is working to first utilize systems control, with therapeutic intent, to determine the parameters for guiding the cell to a directed phenotype/genotype which will then be followed by in depth study, using nanoscale modalities, of the path by which this desired state is achieved. This approach will enable engineering systems that can be applied towards the regulation of a spectrum of cellular functions, such as cancer eradication, controlling viral infection onset, and stem cell differentiation.
