The Department of Chemical Engineering looks forward to sharing skills with, and learning from, the Institute of Biotechnology as the planned merger between the two organisations progresses. As Professor Gladden says 'This is a very exciting period in the development of both our organisations. Many people have worked extremely hard to create two vibrant centres of teaching and research. We are thrilled that the work of the Institute of Biotechnology has been publicly recognised at the highest level in this way and look forward to working ever more closely together.'
