Berkeley Bioengineering Professor Luke Lee has been awarded a major research grant from the Human Frontier Science Program.
The HFSP supports novel, innovative and interdisciplinary basic research focused on the complex mechanisms of living organisms; topics range from molecular and cellular approaches to systems and cognitive neuroscience. A clear emphasis is placed on novel collaborations that bring biologists together with scientists from fields such as physics, mathematics, chemistry, computer science and engineering to focus on problems at the frontier of the life sciences.
Lee will be collaborating with Ian Chambers of the University of Edinburgh, Tim Schroeder
of the Helmholtz Zentrum Muenchen-German Research Centre, and Thomas Wandless of Stanford University on “A Microfluidic, Small Molecule Approach to Perturbation of the Pluripotency Transcription Network”.
