CCBM Summer Internship Program (C-SIP): Applications now open!

with center affiliates Victor Muñoz and Mourad Sadqi

CCBM faculty member Yue Jessica Wang awarded NSF CAREER Award!

The NSF CREST Center for Cellular and Biomolecular Machines was established with a $5 million grant from the and brings together more than a dozen faculty members from multiple units across campus, including bioengineering, physics, chemistry and chemical biology, materials science and engineering. Researchers are studying how biological matter like proteins or cells come together to perform specific tasks, in hopes of eventually being able to engineer and develop innovations ranging from designer cells and tissue to novel diagnostic and therapeutic devices. The CCBM also hosts an integrated, interdisciplinary training program for graduate students that emphasizes physical and biological components and research and training experiences for undergraduate and high school students to enhance the recruitment of underrepresented groups into STEM research.
