UB - University at Buffalo, The State University of New York Chemical and Biological Engineering

Research focus areas

The University at Buffalo Department of Chemical and Biological Engineering has received approximately $13 million in research awards over the last 5 years. Our faculty consistently rank among the highest in the world in measures of research productivity and accomplishment.

The UB CBE faculty carry out groundbreaking research in three broad research areas (Materials Engineering, Biological Engineering, and Computational Science and Engineering). These activities are supported by state-of-the-art shared research facilities across the university, with a significant portion located directly in CBE's home, Furnas Hall. Undergraduate research is encouraged at UB, as it allows development of analytical and computational skills while furthering the development of creative thinking.

We are currently embarking on a process of space expansion and rehabilitation that will provide us with a 30% increase in laboratory and office space to comfortably house our growing research programs.
