CEB invites you to see how our research will shape a more sustainable future for our planet. We combine leading biotechnology research with chemical engineering skills to drive innovation in areas such as healthcare, energy, environment and food production. Hear from current researchers, enjoy a guided tour of our laboratories and join our staff and students for a drinks reception.

The Department (CEB) will be offering a series of mini-talks and poster presentations focusing on the diversity of its research, which will give you a good overview of the impressive cutting-edge technology and wealth of multidisciplinary expertise housed under our roof, as new building with state-of-the-art facilities in the heart of West Cambridge site, where CEB is strategically positioned to help develop research collaboration with its neighbours in IfM, Materials Science, The Cavendish Lab, Physics and  Maxwell Centre.

You will be given opportunities to support our projects and be part of our mission to pursue research of the highest quality to help generate economic and societal impact with sustainability underpinning all our key research areas and activities i.e. from chemical loop combustion for Co2 capture and  sustainable food production to developing low-cost healthcare diagnostic in developing countries, developing a prosthetic plastic  heart valve or a home delivered blood test kit  to help spot mental health illness like depression. 

A drinks reception in our Atrium will round off the day giving you a chance to talk to our young researches and academics about their projects of impact and hear more about how they plan to tackle the biggest global challenges.
