Graduate Programs

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
