Project Profile

Biological and Bio-inspired Motion Systems Operating in Complex Environments

University of California at Berkeley


This Integrative Graduate Education and Research Traineeship (IGERT) program will train biology and engineering students to learn from natural design – a process termed biological inspiration. In particular, trainees will discover principles that underlie how organisms move in complex environments, and learn to use those principles as inspiration to design… more »
