CBEE Research Facilities

The School of CBEE is housed primarily in Gleeson Hall and Merryfield Hall on the OSU campus.  The School also maintains research and teaching laboratories in Graf Hall and Owen Hall on the OSU Campus and shares laboratory space at the Microproducts Breakthrough Institute (MBI) on the Hewlett-Packard campus in Corvallis.  Specific laboratories in CBEE are:

  • Oregon Process Innovation Center (OPIC) for Solar Cell Manufacturing (MBI)

  • Microtechnology-based Chemical Processing Laboratories (MBI, Gleeson Hall)

  • Thin Film Materials Processing & Characterization Laboratories (Gleeson Hall, Graf Hall)

  • Polymer Materials Processing & Characterization Laboratory (Gleeson Hall)

  • Biomass Conversion & Bioprocess Engineering Laboratories (Gleeson Hall)

  • Innovative Reaction Engineering for Materials and Sustainability (iREMS) Laboratory (Gleeson Hall)

  • Environmental Molecular Biology Laboratory (Owen Hall)

  • Cryopreservation Laboratory (Gleeson Hall)

    Research in the Cryopreservation Laboratory has two general focus areas: (1) technologies for long-term preservation of biological products, and (2) microfluidics for chemical processing of blood.  The first category includes the development of strategies for preservation of biomolecules, cells and tissues by cryopreservation, freeze-drying and spray drying.  In the second category, we are developing microfluidic devices for blood processing as a medical intervention (e.g., kidney dialysis, treatment of sepsis) and for creation of high-value products from blood (e.g., red blood cells for transfusions).  The general scope of the research is illustrated below.
