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
The $655,000 grant will allow Professor Ross Carlson to further his research on the role different species of bacteria play in microbial communities and has potential to create new liquid fuel production strategies and better outcomes for chronic wounds.
The Center for Biofilm Engineering, in collaboration with Montana State University’s Department of Visual Media and BioSurface Technologies, is excited to announce the first series of Standardized Biofilm Methods training videos. Continuing the technology
