Description

The 35th Annual Biochemical Engineering Symposium was hosted by the Department of Chemical and Biological Engineering at the South Dakota School of Mines and Technology. This symposium series was started in 1971 by Professors Larry E. Erickson of Kansas State University and Peter J. Reilly, now of Iowa State University. I first attended this symposium in 1992, and have continued to participate over the years, first as graduate student at Colorado State University, and now as a faculty member at the South Dakota School of Mines and Technology. I have found it to be an ideal forum for graduate students researching the various areas of biochemical engineering, as it provides a peer audience outside the home institution that is less intimidating than those at a national professional meeting. It also provides valuable networking opportunities both during the meeting and at the social picnic, which took place at scenic Mount Rushmore National Monument this year. The objectives of the symposium are to provide an opportunity for students to present and publish their work, and provide a forum for informal discussion of biochemical engineering research being conducted at the participating universities. Twelve of the papers presented at the symposium are included in these proceedings. Because final publication usually takes place in refereed journals, these papers are typically less detailed and often represent works in progress.
