Professor Charles Musgrave

Computationally Designing Renewable Energy Solutions

January 14, 2014

Biking down a steep mountain road on his way to work last August, ChBE Professor and Associate Chair Charles Musgrave collided with a truck on a sharp bend, breaking his neck, collarbone, and four ribs. The fact that he showed up to teach on the first day of classes three days after surgery surprised neither his colleagues nor his students.

“I was excited to get back to teaching and research,” he admits.

Tom Belval

Welcome Senior Instructor Tom Belval

August 27, 2013

We are happy to welcome new Senior Instructor Tom Belval, who brings to the department years of experience in the pharmaceutical industry. Belval has a BS in chemical engineering from the University of Missouri-Columbia, and a PhD in chemical engineering from Rice University. He has taught the course Biochemical Separations at CU-Boulder for the last four years.

MSE Director Chris Bowman

Bowman Heads Newly Launched Materials Science and Engineering Program

August 27, 2013

CU’s newly established PhD degree program in Materials Science and Engineering (MSE) welcomed its first graduate students as well as the first new faculty hire into the program this fall thanks in large part to the efforts of MSE Director and ChBE Distinguished Professor Chris Bowman

Melissa Rabin with REU participants in Botswana

Undergrad Melissa Rabin Conducts Research in Botswana

August 27, 2013

After seeing a flier for a research experience for undergraduates (REU) involving sustainable energy for Sub-Saharan Africa, undergraduate student Melissa Rabin applied and was soon off to the University of Botswana (UB). She shared some of her experiences below.

Mark Kastantin

Welcome Assistant Research Professor Mark Kastantin

July 29, 2013

We are pleased to welcome new Assistant Research Professor Mark Kastantin, whose research interests include rationally designing sophisticated, nano-scale, protein-like materials that synergistically combine biologically inspired motifs to perform functions beyond what is found in nature. Some applications of this work include disease diagnosis, targeted drug delivery, and immunotherapy.

Co-op participant John Thilenius at Chevron

Meet Our Students: Co-op Participants John Thilenius, Andy Willett and Tyler Gleditsch

May 28, 2013

The ChBE co-op program is a professional development education program that allows undergraduate students to alternate professional work experiences with classroom coursework.  Students typically complete one year of work at their co-op company, either working continuously or alternating their work experience with academic terms.

Liz Eckstein

Welcome Office Manager Liz Eckstein

April 28, 2013

We are thrilled to welcome new ChBE office manager Liz Eckstein, an operations professional with more than 15 years of experience in the field.

Anushree Chatterjee

Welcome Assistant Professor Anushree Chatterjee

February 5, 2013

Assistant Professor Anushree Chatterjee's research focuses on adopting integrated computational, systems and synthetic biology approaches to investigate fundamental, biotechnological and medically relevant issues including understanding the molecular mechanisms responsible for antibiotic and antiviral resistance, rational design of “next-generation smart antimicrobials,” and construction of synthetic genetic devices for a variety of biotechnological and bioenergy applications

ChBE Balsells Graduate Fellows

Meet Balsells Fellows Marc Vera Canudas, Josep Casamada and Núria Codina Castillo

January 18, 2013

The result of a unique partnership between CU alum Pete Balsells, the University of Colorado Boulder, and the government of Catalonia, Spain, the Balsells Graduate Fellowship Program brings outstanding students from Catalonia to Boulder to pursue master’s and doctoral degrees.  This program funds the students’ education and has enriched both our department and the college community. 

Joel Kaar in his lab

Faculty Feature: Dr. Joel Kaar, Symbiotically Interfacing Proteins and Materials

January 15, 2013

How can we interface proteins with polymers to better deliver drugs to diseased tissues?  Can protein properties be rationally altered to produce valuable compounds such as biofuels?  How can we better detect enzymes involved in, and thereby target and combat, diseases?
