Bioengineers operate in the exciting spaces where medicine and engineering meet, designing molecules and modifying cells with life-changing results.
Bringing these worlds together demands researchers with equal parts intelligence, intensity, and creativity — and perhaps the boldness necessary to buck convention and cut new pathways through unexplored scientific terrain. Whether inventing transformative technologies that allow researchers to control brain cells with light, engineering new-age plants that can withstand climate change, or shaping profound new understandings of why life works — and, sometimes, why it doesn’t — the insights and innovations that come out of Stanford bioengineering benefit people everywhere, every day.
