Research @ IBB
IBB serves as a catalyst for innovative bioengineering and bioscience research at the interface of disciplines. Its role on campus is to breakdown barriers by acting as a catalyst to bring together colleges, departments and individual faculty members to build collaborations and more importantly, a strong community focused on groundbreaking scientific research.
IBB investigators are working on next-generation biomaterial technologies that integrate synthetic materials with biological functionalities to create innovative biomaterials that specifically interact with biological systems to elicit prescribed responses and biological integration. Read More.
IBB investigators are developing a fundamental understanding of biomechanics over a wide range of length scales.
IBB is home to several research labs that focus on various elements of cancer biology research. Interests include basic studies in molecular biology, biochemistry, genetics, cell biology, immunology, in addition to translational research focused on problems of immediate clinical applicability.
