Mid-Atlantic Biochemical Engineering Consortium

Table of Contents


The Mid-Atlantic Biochemical Engineering Consortium (MABEC) was originally organized by Art Humphrey (then at the University of Pennsylvania) and Bob Kelly (then at the Johns Hopkins University) in 1987 to provide an opportunity for biochemical engineering* graduate students and faculty in the mid-Atlantic region to get together and learn about each other's work. The consortium members range from Rutgers University at the northern end to North Carolina State University at the southern end. We are physically located within easy driving distances. Combined, we represent a significant fraction of the biochemical engineering activities in the country. With one exception, the group has met annually since its formation, occasionally with extra industrially oriented symposiums. The meetings have consistently followed a format which emphasizes students making presentations of their ongoing work in a formal setting, similar to that in the national meetings of professional societies. Each participating university selects one oral presentation and a number of poster presentations. In addition, industrial keynote speakers relate their invaluable experience from the prospective of the battle ground.

*"Biochemical engineering" is to be interpreted in a loose sense to include biotechnology and bioengineering.

We invite our industrial colleagues to attend our annual gathering to
