For more than twenty years, the Center for Biocatalysis and Bioprocessing (CBB) has combined first-class scientific faculty with cutting-edge facilities to reshape and define new technologies for chemical, pharmaceutical, nutritional and agrochemical industries. Located at The University of Iowa Research Park, CBB’s multidisciplinary faculty dedicate themselves to education, research, and technology transfer related to biocatalysis and bioprocessing. Throughout the past two decades, CBB’s scientists have routinely made significant contributions to the advancement of science while working with industrial, governmental, and academic clients.
Today, the CBB consists of a growing number of more than 50 faculty members from eight departments, and more than 300 researchers, including graduate and undergraduate students, predoctoral fellows, postdoctoral scientists, technicians, and visiting faculty and industrial scientists. Their principal areas of study include biocatalyst fundamental properties, bioremediation, bioprocessing, new biocatalyst discovery, novel biocatalyst applications, biosensing technology, and reactive agent development.
