CBE Industry Program

Industrial partnerships help to keep the ultimate focus of CBE research on real-world applications. Technology transfer at the CBE involves not only information, but methods and technology development. The CBE has a Standardized Biofilm Methods (SBM) laboratory specifically designated to develop these methods. For more information, contact Paul Sturman, CBE Industrial Coordinator, at or (406) 994-2102.
