Biochemical and Biomedical Engineering

Stem cell in hair follicle.

Our Biochemical and Biomedical Engineering faculty and students focus on tissue replacement and regeneration. 

By studying the role of mechanical forces on cell behavior, protein glycosylation, stem cell aging, and stem cell differentiation, they develop novel technologies such as production of value-added chemicals, engineering novel proteins with improved properties, development of anti-clotting agents, scale-up production of stem cells for cell therapies and engineering tissues such as blood vessels, skin, bone, and cartilage.
