Penn State, Department of Chemical Engineering 

Penn State's Chemical Engineering Department, headed by Andrew Zydney, is researching activities that are focused in three distinct areas: artificial organs, bioseparations and membrane processes. In each of these areas, their goal is to develop a more fundamental understanding of the factors governing the behavior of these processes, including the complex interactions between the biological molecules/cells and the synthetic materials used in these devices. Descriptions of several ongoing research areas are described on their research page.
