ASEE Chemical Engineering Division
2010 ASEE Annual Conference
Research at the Interface Between
Control and Biology
Natural systems are characterized by robust networks of
regulatory systems, typically consisting of layers of feedback
and feedforward control circuits. These multiscale networks
occur at the levels of gene regulation, protein signaling,
intercellular coupling, metabolism, and the whole organism. In
healthy systems, one can bring the tools from control systems
to unravel the underlying design principles and explain robust
phenotypes. In disease systems, related tools from control
theory can be utilized to identify biomarkers as well as
therapeutic interventions. In this talk, I will describe a few of
the exciting problems at the interface of control engineering
and biology, drawing examples from neuroscience and
