Join us for an interactive webinar featuring Director Lynden Archer and Assistant Professors, Julius Lucks and Chris Alabi
Can we engineer biology? A question for the biomolecular engineer of the future.
Biology is all around us – from our bodies to our surroundings. It is no surprise then that some of the biggest challengesfacing the world today – from health to sustainability to aging – involve biology. But biology is qualitative, complicated and confusing. How can we hope to rationally engineer biology to solve these challenges?
The biomolecular engineer harnesses the tools of chemical engineering to engineer the molecules and systems that control biology. From modeling cells as chemical systems to constructing biological ‘circuits’ that regulate biology, students and faculty in the School of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering (CBE) are changing the way we think about biological systems. Join Professors Lynden Archer, Julius Lucks and Chris Alabi as they tell you about this emerging discipline and some of the exciting breakthroughs that research in CBE is enabling even as we train the next generation of biomolecular engineers.
