The Bioelectronics NRT, housed in the Institute of Biosciences and Bioengineering (IBB), is designed to provide students the knowledge and tools that they will need to work in collaborative teams on biotechnology projects.
The Bioelectronics NRT was established collaboratively by faculty in the Schools of Engineering, Natural Sciences, and Social Sciences to connect twelve different departments across the three schools.
The Bioelectronics curriculum is designed to provide students a strong foundation in team work and skills to navigate productive research collaborations across different disciplines. Students participate in a multiyear curriculum in addition to the requirements of their graduate program.
Bioelectronics is a rapidly growing field where cells and synthetic materials are integrated to generate useful biotechnologies that have the potential to transform every aspect of society. This topic connects research strengths at Rice University ranging from materials science and synthetic biology to the study of team science.
