This webinar will focus on how biochemical engineering developed in response to the need for large-scale production of antibiotics in the 1940s and 50s, even though fermentation provided a route to many industrial organic chemicals prior to their production from petroleum.
The production of electrofuels requires the efficient transport of electrons from an electrochemical system into a biological system. We have approached this challenge by identifying natural chemical mediators that
Dr Singer and his lab are developing an integrated Microbial-ElectroCatalytic (MEC) system to produce advanced biofuels from H2/CO2.
Discovery of new antibodies for therapeutics requires discerning tools to identify rare cells producing specific antibodies among many similar ones.
Learn about viral contamination events and risk mitigation strategies that may be used to reduce the potential for contamination.
Cellulases are of considerable current interest for converting the cellulosic content of biomass to fermentable sugars for biofuels production.
For the past two decades the capability of protein engineers to devise clever tumor-targeting molecules has outstripped our understanding of how these agents distribute through the body and permeate through tumors.
Micro- and nanoscale technologies are emerging as powerful tools for controlling the interaction between cells and their surroundings for biological studies, tissue eng
Dr. Holtzapple describes the challenges of providing energy to a growing world. To address energy needs, he shows how the MixAlco process converts waste biomass into bio-gasoline.
Dr. Langer discusses the involvement of engineering in health care, from the discovery of the first angiogenesis inhibitors to the development of controlled drug delivery systems and the foundation of tissue engineering.
Stem cells have become a promising cell source in the tissue engineering field.
We engineer designer fusion proteins that combine domains and functions from unrelated proteins and enzymes.
