Major gift from Gilbert Omenn ’61 and Martha Darling *70 names bioengineering institute

The Omenn-Darling Bioengineering Institute will promote new directions in research, education and innovation at the intersection of engineering and the life sciences while serving as the home for new interdisciplinary bioengineering postdoctoral, graduate and undergraduate programs.

At new institute, quest for better lives starts with curiosity

Like living organisms themselves, the new Omenn-Darling Bioengineering Institute is built to thrive as a community, mixing disciplines to create a new synthesis of ideas and techniques that improve the health of people and the planet.
