Biomolecular Engineering

Faculty involved in biomolecular applications carry out research in areas ranging from microbiome engineering to proteomics and metabolics. Some are engaged in developing next generation technologies such as regenerative medicine and drug delivery, while others are involved in the creation of novel and more sensitive biosensors and new innovations in agricultural biotechnology. Research efforts include everything from purely computational to purely experimental and everything in between.

  • biomaterials & biomimetic materials
  • systems biology
  • drug delivery
  • metabolic engineering
  • tissue engineering
  • bionanotechnology, bio/nanosensor, bio/nanomaterials,
  • regenerative medicine
  • microfluidics
