    Connecting Biotech Boundaries—Academia to Industry At CBB, our goal is to reshape the agricultural, chemical, nutritional, and pharmaceutical industries by combining the intellectual talents of top scientific faculty with the practical delivery of new technologies. Confidential collaborations with clients enable our laboratory to produce products and develop processes for industry, government, and academia. CBB has continued to participate in the economic development activities of The University of Iowa, by bringing biotechnology companies to The University of Iowa Research Park.
  • Professor Mark Arnold assumed interim director duties in June 2015. This month, Mark was named the permanent Director of Center for Biocatalysis and Bioprocessing (CBB), while maintaining his research program in the Department of Chemistry.


    Over the next year, Professor Arnold will focus on innovation in education and training, research and scholarship, and technology transfer and economic development, as well as promoting CBB as a resource for UI researchers and commercial partners.
