description

  • Cornell has targeted biotechnology with a major research thrust aimed at integrating the life sciences with physical, engineering and computational science. MS&E at Cornell is at the center of this arena, with strength in bioinspired materials synthesis, biosensors, biomechanics, biological labeling, and biophysics, among other research topics. The marrying of nanotechnology and biological investigations and processes is an important new direction for materials research.
