NSF Science and Technology Center for Quantitative Cell Biology
Beckman Institute for Advanced Science and Technology
Advancing knowledge about cells
The NSF Science and Technology Center for Quantitative Cell Biology will create whole-cell models to transform our understanding of how cells function. With cutting-edge imaging and simulation tools, the center will advance the study of healthy and diseased cells; accelerate research into gene expression, metabolism, and division; and share science with communities of all ages through a partnership with the popular computer game Minecraft.
A new paradigm
We're forging a new scientific understanding of the cell that will have implications for human health, photosynthesis, evolution, and more.Learn more about our impact
