Mission & Vision

The EMBRIO Institute embodies a research and education enterprise in which members share a collective sense of ownership and desire for professional and personal growth in order to address challenges across biological kingdoms and levels of organization; transcend disciplines; lower barriers to participation by all scientists; and serve as a collaborative model to solve foundational problems in integrative biology and education.

Through integration of biology, computational modeling, and imaging, EMBRIO addresses the fundamental “Rules of Life” question that governs the response of organisms from all kingdoms to mechanical and chemical signals: How are multimodal signals integrated across scales to coordinate the robust cell biological and morphogenetic response needed to survive?
