Research Interests: It is challenging to create artificial cellular systems that match the dynamical behavior and resilience of natural cellular systems, while showing superior function in some areas. The Tan Lab uses a holistic approach, which integrates synthetic biology and systems biology, to engineer synthetic vesicles, cell-free systems, and synthetic cells. Our work will lead to effective and safe artificial cellular systems for broad biotechnological applications, including immunotherapy of cancer cells and bacterial infection.
