CBE researchers are making key contributions toward developing a promising new treatment for the widespread and devastating diseases toxoplasmosis and malaria.
Sujit Datta has been named to the 35 Under 35 list by the American Institute of Chemical Engineers (AIChE), the largest professional organization in the field with more than 60,000 members.
Researchers in chemical and biological engineering have created a new and improved way to more precisely control genetically engineered bacteria: by simply switching the lights on and off. Working in E. coli, the workhorse organism for scientists to engineer metabolism, researchers developed a system for controlling one of the key genetic circuits...
Graduate student Shuwen Yue has received a 2020 Merck Research Award from the American Chemical Society's Women Chemists Committee. Yue was one of eight award recipients, each of whom received a $1500 stipend and delivered a talk during a half-day symposium at the ACS national-virtual meeting on August 16.
A Princeton team has developed a class of light-switchable, highly adaptable molecular tools with new capabilities to control cellular activities. The antibody-like proteins, called OptoBinders, allow researchers to rapidly control processes inside and outside of cells by directing their localization, with potential applications including protein...

Cancer researcher and CBE graduate alumnus Yogesh Goyal has received a 2020 Career Award at the Scientific Interface (CASI) from the Burroughs Wellcome Fund. All eight of this year's awardees receive $500,000 over a five-year period, bridging postdoctoral training with the first three years...

Q&A with CBE graduate student Alicia Magann, whose research bridges several disciplines. Raised in Phoenix, Magann graduated from Arizona State University (ASU) with a degree in chemical engineering that led somewhat unusually to her graduate work in quantum control through the chemistry department.
A new partnership between the Princeton Catalysis Initiative (PCI) and Genentech, a biotechnology company based in South San Francisco, is enabling several Princeton faculty members, including Robert Prud'homme, to pursue mission-driven collaborations in fundamental research.
Jay Benziger, professor of chemical and biological engineering, was among ten Princeton University faculty members transferred to emeritus status in recent action by the Board of Trustees.
