Cells in a vein

The Interdisciplinary Research Themes (IRTs) were initiated by the College of Engineering & Applied Sciences to build on our college and campus strengths, prepare for future research opportunities, and accelerate our positive impacts to our state and nation through internal college funding. The Precision Biomaterials IRT was launched in January 2018 to integrate biomaterials design with drug and cell-based technologies to engineer and validate new combinational health care products and translate clinical needs into therapies - spanning from molecular design to medical product design. As planned, all phase one themes were reviewed after two years of activity with college leadership agreeing the work in this area was significant and likely to continue without added support starting in July 2020. On this page, interested parties can find information about past seed grants, collaborators and achievements.
