Integrative Science and Engineering Center

Welcome

The Integrative Science and Engineering Center addresses emerging challenges affecting populations on a local, regional, and global level through research and discovery. Our thematic areas of interest include biomedical, biomolecular, and environmental research.

As a vital part of our teams, undergraduate and graduate students gain authentic research experience, training to become the next generation of scientists and engineers using integrated approaches to solve broad challenges of societal relevance.

From The Conversation

Testing drugs on cell cultures in a petri dish is cheaper and comes with less ethical issues than testing with live animals. But cell cultures, unlike animals, are flat. Dr. Kristen Krupa-Comfort of The University of Dayton is working on a method of creating 3D cell cultures that will allow researchers to test drugs in similar conditions to live animals, all in a petri dish.
