Dan Kehoe came back to engineering after five years of pursuing other interests. He'd kept his membership in the American Institute of Chemical Engineers and kept up friendships with former classmates in the field one of whom, at Carnegie Mellon, told him he should get back in. So he did in 2003 and he now works with Emmanouhl Tzanakakis in the area of stem cell research.
Dan sees himself working in the biotech or pharmaceutical industries, doing researcher that might some day slow diseases like diabetes.
“The department has five faculty working in biological engineering and I was glad to get the opportunity to work with the newest member. We have a very strong program on the biological side.”
