Research Open Day 2003

Research Open Day and Opening of CUBE

(Cambridge Unit for Bioscience Engineering)

On Tuesday, 1st July, 2003, the Department of Chemical Engineering held its annual Research Open Day on a theme of Bioscience Engineering.

The event incorporated the official opening of CUBE, the Cambridge Unit for Bioscience Engineering, by Dr Mark Walport, Director of The Wellcome Trust. Dr Walport is shown in the photograph cutting the ribbon, next to the plaque which reads, "The construction of CUBE was generously supported by grants from the Science Research Investment Fund of The Wellcome Trust and the Shell Endowment Fund of the Department of Chemical Engineering."

The space now occupied by CUBE had been a large open plan laboratory (left), but as the emphasis of Chemical Engineering changes, so the needs of researchers change and this new unit will provide specialised facilities for our researchers working on Bioscience Engineering.

Prof Luyben

The programme for the Research Open Day included a mixture of internal and external speakers together with informal "cluster" periods where delegates had the opportunity to talk to members of staff, visit the laboratories and talk to research students.

The Professor J. F. Davidson Annual Lecture was given by Professor Karel Luyben, from the University of Delft, who spoke on Industry-University Relationships; development of biotechnology in The Netherlands.
