"No great discovery was ever made without a bold guess" Isaac Newton
Chou Collective was established in 2017. We are a multidisciplinary and highly skilled team that works at the interface of biology, tissue engineering, biomedical engineering and materials science to develop novel solutions in the treatment and understanding of diseases.
The group uses engineering principles from biology to develop new engineering innovations that will transform medicine and create a more sustainable world.
Chou Collective works at the interface of biomaterials, cell mechanics, physics and cell biology, seeking to understand how physical properties and biological function affect each other in different cellular systems and diseases. These basic mechanical processes have profound effect in health (organ growth, heart/lung development) and diseases including cancer and osteoporosis.
Dr. Joshua Chou
Dr. Joshua Chou is a Senior lecturer in the School of Biomedical Engineering at the Faculty of Engineering & IT.
Working with an international multidisciplinary team of engineers, biologists, and physicists from Harvard and MIT, the team seeks to understand physical properties of the living cell and their impact in health and disease.
