Biological and Pharmaceutical

Biological & Pharmaceutical Research

Our Biological and Pharmaceutical faculty apply the principles of engineering design, synthesis and analysis to biological systems and biomedical technologies. The department's research involves a multidisciplinary approach to solve problems at the interface of the physical sciences, life sciences, and engineering, particularly in the areas of biocatalysis, protein and insecticide production, drug delivery, medical devices, and tissue engineering.

Researchers are working to develop safe delivery systems that target drugs precisely in the human body and avoid premature metabolization or elimination. New materials are being developed that can interact with the human body to perform certain functions while maintaining compatibility.
