At the Center for Biofilm Engineering (CBE), multidisciplinary research teams develop
beneficial uses for microbial biofilms and find solutions to industrially relevant
biofilm problems. The CBE was established at Montana State University, Bozeman, in
1990 as a National Science Foundation Engineering Research Center. As part of the
MSU College of Engineering, the CBE gives students a chance to get a head start on
their careers by working on research teams led by world-recognized leaders in the
