Department of Biochemical Engineering
Our excellent international reputation derives from a shared passion to understand how life science discoveries can be converted into commercially viable products on a truly global scale.
Nobel Prize for Chemistry awarded to Biochemical Engineer Frances Arnold, and Pioneers of phage display and antibody engineering, George Smith and Sir Greg Winter.
Those working in the field of protein engineering have been
wondering if it was ever going to get the recognition it deserved. Now these three
pioneers of the field have been recognised with the Nobel Prize in Chemistry.
What makes these three special is the sheer impact they have had on our lives
whether we know it or not.
