Biosystems and Biomaterials Division Groups

Biomarker and Genomic Sciences Group

The Biomarker and Genomic Sciences Group develops and applies standards and methods for all analytical and bioanalytical measurements pertinent to instrument calibration and validation to ensure bioassay performance for identification and quantitation of molecular and biological species.

Biomaterials Group

The Biomaterials Group develops measurement technologies and measurement assurance strategies to quantify cells, biomaterials, and cell-material interactions.

Cell Systems Science Group

The Cell Systems Science Group conducts research in measurements and models that support the understanding of complex biological phenomena at the cellular and subcellular level. The group focuses on the cell as a system and tools that can make measurements and characterize the system properties.

Cellular Engineering Group

The Cellular Engineering Group works to provide a foundation of measurement assurance to support the control and rational design of biological function.

Complex Microbial Systems Group

Microbes play a critical role in health, agriculture, public safety, alternative energy, manufacturing and the environment. These applications demand reliability of identification, discrimination, and quantification of microbes at a level of speed and accuracy that is unprecedented.
