Bacteria get a bum rap. Long cast as deadly enemies, bacteria have emerged as allies in the fights against pollution and disease. But harnessing that potential will require a strategy to control their behavior.

Rawlison Zhang, a junior in chemical and biological engineering, won the gold poster award at this year's Princeton Research Day.
Transient liquid-like droplets made up of proteins and RNA are scattered throughout the cell — with potentially broad drug discovery implications.

José Avalos has been named a Camille Dreyfus Teacher-Scholar  "for spatial and dynamic control of engineered metabolism for microbial chemical production."

In a study with implications for efforts to halt the spread of antibiotic-resistant bacteria, researchers at Princeton have identified a new, troubling path that some bacteria take toward resistance.
Chemical and biological engineering junior Todd Baldwin is co-founder and chief engineer of WellPower, a Princeton-born startup providing a sustainable solution to the lack of access to electricity and clean water.
The Graduate School has awarded honorific fellowships to two students of chemical and biological engineering for the 2019-20 academic year. Four such honorific fellowships were awarded across the University.
New computational research from a CBE team has shown that salt in highly supersaturated solutions first enters a semi-crystalline state before falling out as a true crystal, a finding that has implications for everything from climate models to the production of medicine.

Four students from chemical and biological engineering have been named to the Graduate Research Fellowship Program, an award from the National Science Foundation that helps fund those students' education and research for three years.

Professor Pablo Debenedetti will deliver the 2019 Keith E. Gubbins Lectures at North Carolina State University on March 18 and 19.
