More than 50 faculty from all engineering disciplines - with ties to KU’s main campus and the University of Kansas Medical Center - are affiliated with KU’s Bioengineering program.

KU Bioengieneering is characterized by an entrepreneurial spirit and has an established track record of start-up success. This includes the first publicly-traded company with origins at KU, Savara, which produces an aerosolized treatment for cystic fibrosis. It’s a spinoff from the laboratory of Distinguished Professor of Pharmaceutical Chemistry and Chemical & Petroleum Engineering, Cory Berkland.

KU’s 280,000 square-foot Integrated Science Building will be home to world-class laboratory and classroom space for cutting-edge research in bioengineering, chemistry, medicinal chemistry, physics, molecular biosciences, and related fields. It will provide new ways for students to interact with instructors and classmates and offer close integration of their undergraduate studies with cutting-edge research activity.

Distinguished Foundation Professor Steve Soper researches “lab on a chip” technologies that can help diagnose and treat diseases. This research largely focuses on the development of biomedical devices, and the associated assays. It seeks to pinpoint diagnostics for cancer, stroke and infectious diseases, and bring diagnostics to the point-of-care.
