Department of BioEngineering
The newly formed Department of BioEngineering integrates the disciplines of engineering and cancer biology and collaborates with other departments in the Division of Basic Science to accelerate the discovery of cancer pathways and therapy.
Led by Chair Gregory Sawyer, PhD, bioengineering is a transdisciplinary approach that links the physical sciences, engineering, mathematics and simulation, with pharmacology, oncology, gene therapy and biomedicine, all with a focus on cancer.
The department will be one of the key basic science departments at Moffitt’s Center for Innovation, a new research facility being built at Speros FL, designed to stimulate entrepreneurship. Phase one of the development of Speros FL is expected to begin in mid-to-late 2023. Currently, the department is located at Moffitt Cancer Center's Magnolia campus.
