Research Summary: 

The Galloway lab focuses on integrating synthetic circuitry to drive cellular behaviors. The lab extracts systems-level principles that govern complex, dynamic cellular behaviors such as cellular reprogramming. Harnessing tools from synthetic biology and approaches in molecular systems biology, the lab aims to develop novel tools to examine cellular transitions and engineer cellular therapies.
