effective diagnostics, therapies and treatments for diseases and infections could increasingly involve re-engineering the body’s internal biomechanisms at their most basic chemical and molecular foundations.

Growing knowledge about the body’s biological processes is increasing the possibilities for restoring human health, says Xiao Wang, an associate professor of biomedical engineering in Arizona State University’s Ira A. Fulton Schools of Engineering. He and a team of researchers are exploring ways to trigger and control cell differentiation and transition to unlock properties that may change bioengineers’ approach to diagnostics, vaccine development and therapeutic treatments.
