Biomolecular Engineering

The Biomolecular Engineering (BME) Department within the Jack Baskin School of Engineering features an interdisciplinary blend of engineering, biology, chemistry, and statistics designed to foster collaboration with other departments. This blend reflects our vision of the direction that biomedical discovery will take over the next two decades.

The BME Department ladder-rank faculty includes  Mark Akeson, Phil Berman, Angela Brooks, Russ Corbett-Detig, Rebecca DuBois, Camilla Forsberg, Ed Green, David Haussler, Richard Hughey, Kevin Karplus, Daniel Kim, Todd Lowe , Benedict Paten, Nader Pourmand, Josh Stuart, and Christopher Vollmers . Robert Coffman, Zemin Zhang, and David Bernick hold adjunct faculty appointments in the department. David Deamer, UC Davis Emeritus Professor of chemistry and biochemistry also holds a research professor appointment with the BME Department.

Members of the BME Department collaborate actively with faculty from other SOE departments and with the Physical & Biological Sciences departments of MCD Biology, Chemistry & Biochemistry, Environmental Toxicology, Ecology & Evolutionary Biology, and Ocean Sciences.
