The convergence of biology with the physical sciences and engineering has emerged at a national level as a Presidential priority. Biomolecular engineering exists at the interface between engineering and molecular biology (cells and molecules) and focuses on both understanding and engineering complex living systems for applications ranging from the development of therapeutics and improving the effectiveness and delivery of clinical medicine to biological synthesis of alternative fuels. The integration of biology, engineering, and math is critical for the successful engineering solutions to related health and human diseases and energy.
