Thursday, Jan. 31, 2019: Winter Research Review

The 4th year and 3rd year Graduate Students will present their research at the Research Review on Thursday, January 31, 2019 at Clayton Hall Conference Center. The Chemical & Biomolecular Engineering Research Review is for fellow students, faculty, and industry. Register NOW to attend the review.


Faculty Positions in the Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering

Develop and lead a vigorous research program; teach and advise students at both the undergraduate and graduate levels; participate actively in the departmental and larger professional community. Applications in all research areas will be considered. We seek candidates that will contribute, through high quality scholarship and teaching, to improve our department’s national standing and visibility.

  • (1) Tenure-track Assistant Professor. Current research in the department encompasses strong efforts in all areas of chemical engineering science, including catalysis, reaction engineering and energy; biomolecular, biochemical, and/or bioprocess engineering; polymers, colloids, and materials; and thermodynamics and transport phenomena. Ph.D. or equivalent in chemical engineering or a related field.
  • (2) Tenure-track Assistant Professor in biomolecular, biochemical, and/or bioprocess engineering. Ph.D. or equivalent in chemical engineering or a related field as well as a demonstrated commitment to diversity and promoting the values of equity and inclusion in the workplace.


ENGINEERING’S YAN NAMED NAI FELLOW: UD chemical engineer honored by National Academy of Inventors

Dec. 11, 2018--Yushan Yan, Distinguished Engineering Professor in chemical and biomolecular engineering and Associate Dean for Research and Entrepreneurship in the University of Delaware’s College of Engineering, has been named a Fellow of the National Academy of Inventors (NAI).

A NEW WAY TO USE CRISPR: UD engineers develop methods to use CRISPR technology for conditional gene regulation

Dec. 10, 2018--A team of engineers at the University of Delaware has developed a method to use CRISPR/Cas9 technology to set off a cascade of activities in cells, a phenomenon known as conditional gene regulation. Their method, described in the journal Nature Chemical Biology, introduces a new functionality to CRISPR, one of today’s most-talked-about technologies.


UD Invention Part of Top Technology: Reebok sports bra with shear thickening fluid is a newsmaker in 2018

Dec. 04, 2018--A sports bra enabled by UD technology, the Reebok PureMove Bra, has been named to Popular Science’s 31st annual Best of What’s New awards and TIME’s Best Inventions 2018.


GENE THERAPY FOR BLOOD DISORDERS: UD engineers develop particles to reach stem cells

Nov. 26, 2018-- In a paper published in the journal Science Advances, Chen-Yuan Kao, a doctoral student in chemical engineering, and Eleftherios T. (Terry) Papoutsakis, Unidel Eugene du Pont Chair of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering, describe how they used megakaryocytic microparticles, which circulate naturally in the blood stream, to deliver plasmid DNAs and small RNAs to hematopoietic stem cells.


FASTER-CHARGING, SAFER BATTERIES: UD invention aims to improve battery performance

Nov. 21, 2018--Imagine a world where cell phones and laptops can be charged in a matter of minutes instead of hours, rolled up and stored in your pocket, or dropped without sustaining any damage. It is possible, according to University of Delaware Professor Thomas H. Epps, III, but the materials are not there yet.
