Graduate students are vital to the Department of Chemical and Biological Engineering’s research efforts.
Faculty and their students are conducting research in the following chemical and biological engineering areas:
- Bioprocess, biofuels and biopharmaceutics
- Biomaterials and biological nanomaterials
- Cancer mechanisms, models and theranostics
- catalysis and reactor design
- CO2 separation and gas treating
- Drug screening, resistance and delivery
- Electrochemical systems and energy storage
- Electrodeposition and spintronics
- Fuel cells and photovoltaics
- Functionalized membranes
- Interfacial transport and surface phenomena
- Ionic liquid-based materials and systems
- Magnetic materials and nanotechnology
- Metabolic engineering/synthetic biology
- Molecular simulations and modeling
- Polymeric material synthesis and design
