2013 CBE Annual Undergraduate Research Day / NJAIChE Student Awards

The Chemical and Biochemical Engineering Department showed off its star students during two events on Monday, March 11, 2013:

The Undergraduate Research day took place from 12:00-1:30pm at the C-254 Corridor. Congratulations to the following students who have been awarded prizes:

1st Place Poster: Ashwin Parcha ('13) [Right] and Janki Patil ('14) [Left]
"The Effects of High-Shear Wet Granulation Process Parameters on Granule Characteristics"
Under the direction of Koushik Sowrirajan, Sarang Oka, and Dr. Rohit Ramachandran

2nd Place Poster: Chaitali Inamdar ('14) [Left]
"Assessment of Uncertainty Propagation in Dynamic Process Flowsheets for Pharmaceutical Manufacturing"
Under the direction of Amanda Roger, Fani Boukouvala, and Dr. Marianthi Ierapetritou

Outreach At Clifton High School

The Rutgers AIChE chapter participated in the New Jersey Science & Engineering Festival held at Clifton High School (Clifton, NJ). Members of the AIChE student chapter and Chem-E-Car team interacted with over 100 parents and kids promoting Chemical and Biochemical Engineering, Rutgers University, and the value of STEM. The RU AIChE table was set up next to RU EWB's table and the SoE table. Also present from Rutgers was the Solar Car, ISPE, and the Rutgers Astronomy Society (old site link).

Agnesa Redere ('14) looks on as Gary Spingarn ('13) teaches two kids about electrochemistry.

The two day outreach event was supported by Agnesa R. ('14), Alex M. ('14), Gary S. ('13), and Sumit S. ('13). On Saturday, the club had faced a handful of logistic difficulties, however the issues were remedied by RUPD, the Rutgers fire marshal, and the chapter's advisor, Dr. Tomassone. Rutgers AIChE thanks Dean Rankin and the rest of the School of Engineering outreach program for their support. For more pictures, check out the gallery.

Pharmaceutical processes include, among others, chemical synthesis, formulation of solid oral dosage forms, and manufacture of biological molecules via cell culture, fermentation or synthesis. Synthetic processes for small molecules have common elements with the fine chemicals industry.  Processes for solid dose oral formulations revolve around the science and technology of organic solids processing, which has commonality with other industries such as catalyst manufacture, munitions, food, detergents, etc.  The processes for biomolecules share many elements with biofuels and biofeedstocks.  However, the regulatory framework for pharmaceuticals is much more complex than other industries, and as a result the state of the art is different than in other industries.
