The physical manifestation of our vision for the future of Princeton Bioengineering is taking shape in our plans for the new PBI home. The BioE building is currently being designed as part of an expansive new complex along Ivy Lane and Western Way, and will house state of the art research and teaching laboratories and core facilities.
BioE will be centrally located in within the broader complex, with proximity to many related units on campus including the Department of Chemical and Biological Engineering (CBE). Interestingly, these plans can be viewed as progressing across length scales, from the molecular to the cellular and multicellular levels and then up to organisms and their environment (Environmental Sciences, or ES).
At the other end of the spectrum, we’re thrilled that the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) will reside right across the courtyard from BioE. This arrangement will catalyze our vision for advancing bio-interfacing devices and technologies that utilize electrons and photons to directly manipulate nanoscale biological structure and function. All of these activities will be strongly tied to molecular biology, genomics and data science, based just across Washington Road.
