Faculty

The CBB has assembled an experienced and multidisciplinary faculty and student body that represents the strongest cluster in the United States of scientists, laboratory personnel, graduate and postdoctoral students in the areas of biocatalysis and bioprocessing. Our program is not affiliated with one department within the University, but is based on contributions of more than 50 faculty members from 12 departments, including Biochemistry, Biology, Chemical and Biochemical Engineering, Biomedical Engineering, Chemistry, Civil and Environmental Engineering, Dentistry, Microbiology and Immunology, Molecular Physiology and Biophysics, Ophthalmology and Visual Sciences, Pharmaceutical Sciences & Experimental Therapeutics and Radiology (FRRB).
