Biomolecular Engineering

Biomolecular engineering reflects the much-needed interface between biology and engineering. Biomolecular Engineering at IBBR leverages departmental faculty and expertise at the University of Maryland, applying engineering principles to the manipulation of biological molecules and proteins.

IBBR researchers work together to effectively integrate molecular-level events into an understanding of complex biological systems, and to create the next generation of tools necessary for rapid, accurate and cost-effective analysis of biomolecules. Biofabrication – the use of biomolecules and biological materials and mechanisms for construction – offers the opportunity to span these disciplines by providing convergent and synergistic approaches for building biological device interfaces.
