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 Laboratory (SBML) specifically designated to develop these methods. Contact Paul Sturman for information on our industrial program.
