In our approach, we exploit metabolic pathways through characterization techniques and redirection of metabolism to optimize cellular processes for a variety of applications. Our current research focus is in two main areas: (1) plant metabolic engineering for the production of medicinals via plant cell culture and (2) design and utilization of mammalian cell in vitro systems for the development of novel cell encapsulation systems and the study of cellular function. Researchers in our laboratory come from various disciplines with backgrounds in chemical engineering, bioengineering, molecular and cellular biology, and plant biology.

Welcome to the Roberts Lab!

The Roberts group, headed by Susan C. Roberts, focuses on cellular and metabolic engineering in both mammalian and plant cell cultures. In our approach, we exploit metabolic pathways through characterization techniques and redirection of metabolism to optimize cellular processes for a variety of applications. Our current research focus is in two main areas: (1) plant metabolic engineering for the production of medicinals via plant cell culture and (2) design and utilization of 3-dimensional mammalian cell in vitro systems to explore the role of oxygen tension and biomaterial properties on cell functionality.

Researchers in our laboratory come from various disciplines with backgrounds in chemical engineering, bioengineering, molecular and cellular biology, and plant biology.
