Chemical Engineering


Healthcare and Pharmaceuticals

Our vision is to enable Loughborough’s engineering strength to be developed at a direct interface with biology and medicine. Based within the Centre for Biological Engineering (CBE) our activities are positioned in the translational space between scientific discovery and the production of cell-based biological products, techniques and therapies. We believe that it has now earned the reputation of being the major UK National Centre for late-stage process-oriented research in Regenerative Medicine. The CBE is one of only four such groups in the world (the others being Toronto, Georgia Tech and Singapore).
