Bioengineers at Princeton achieve far-reaching impact by answering fundamental questions about how living systems work while bringing an engineering approach to solving real-world problems. Work in bioengineering aims to improve human health as well as to addressing global challenges such as sustainable food, energy, water, and the need for innovative materials.
