Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering
Engineering at the cellular level.
The next big cancer drug. Algae biofuel. Nanodevice miniaturized surgical tools. These are just a few examples of what Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering will bring to society. We work at the molecular and cellular level, interfacing between physical sciences and life sciences. Our achievements advance the fields of energy, nanotechnology, pharma, systems engineering, biotechnology, biomedical engineering and advanced materials processing.

UCLA Samueli School of Engineering’s Integrated Sensors Laboratory is collaborating with Airborne Wireless Network (ABWN), a leader in high-speed broadband aerial wireless networks, to field test its terahertz-band communication technology at medium altitude.
Aydogan Ozcan, Chancellor’s Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering, and Bioengineering, has been elected a fellow of the National Academy of Inventors.
Confirming a century-old prediction could help scientists construct new classes of materials
Many people who are diagnosed with cancer will undergo some type of surgery to treat their disease — almost 95 percent of people with early-diagnosed breast cancer will require surgery and it’s often the first line of treatment for people with brain tumors, for example.
