Welcome to the Ngo Lab at Boston University! 
 

We are interested in achieving a multi-scale understanding of the molecular organization of life. How do monomeric building blocks form macromolecules? and how do macromolecules give rise to organelles and cells? To address these questions, we use molecular engineering to probe and re-program how cells communicate with one another at cell-cell interfaces. We then leverage these tools to gain insight into natural biology and to overcome roadblocks in the development of cell therapies and tissue engineered systems.
