A key challenge in improving human health is to understand how cellular behavior arises from molecular-level interactions. The field of Cellular and Molecular Bioengineering seeks to understand, so that we may ultimately control, the mechanical, chemical, and electrical processes of the cell. The aims of this journal are to publish experimental and theoretical studies that advance our understanding of (1) the biomechanics of cells, including their interaction with the extracellular environment, and of biomolecules, including proteins, lipids, polysaccharides, and nucleic acids; (2) the chemical thermodynamics, kinetics, and transport processes associated with biomolecular interactions and cellular processes; and (3) electrical processes that underlie cell behavior. In addition, an overarching aim is to integrate our understanding of mechanical, chemical, and electrical processes to better understand the integrated, systems nature of cellular processes.
