Ingmar Riedel-Kruse - Assistant Professor of Bioengineering
Clark Center Faculty
The Riedel-Kruse lab combines basic research and engineering approaches by working on (1) biophysics of development and (2) biotic games.
- They investigate how genetic networks orchestrate the dynamics and mechanics of developing embryos with a focus on oscillatory processes and molecular forces, with the long-term motivation to advance our understanding on human disease and tissue engineering.
- Biotic games require biological process to run and could have a similar impact on society as conventional video games based on electronics; and we design and engineer biotic games specifically targeted at educational challenges and to support biomedical research.
Theyuse theoretical/computational as well as experimental approaches based on molecular, cellular, developmental biology; zebrafish; imaging; physics; informatics / computer sciences; micro-fluidics; and engineering.
