Biomolecular Track

Description

    Biomolecular Engineering is an emerging discipline at the interface of molecular biology, biophysical chemistry, and chemical engineering — whose express purpose is developing novel molecular tools, materials and approaches that are the focal point of applied and basic research within academia, industry and medicine. This effort includes both multidisciplinary and interdisciplinary activities, including applied mathematics and computer science, physical chemistry, synthetic and molecular biology, material science and molecular biophysics. The prime goal of these advanced studies is to translate our understanding of the fundamental principles of physical biochemistry into useful processes, devices, therapies, and diagnostics that will benefit society and advance human health.
