Department of Biosystems and Engineering (D-BSSE) ETH
Academic & Applied Research Institutions
At the Department of Biosystems Science and Engineering (D-BSSE), experimental and computational biologists and engineers work together in an interdisciplinary team in order to conduct comprehensive analysis of complex processes in cells and organisms. They develop strategies and techniques for the programming and rational design of cell functions, and implement these in complex biological systems. D-BSSE research is driven by open scientific questions and unmet societal needs in biotechnology and life sciences. The mission of D-BSSE is the understanding, rational design and programming of complex biological systems from the nanoscale up to whole organisms.
