Research

Overview:

The Institute's research encompasses two distinct areas: one addressing continuous processes and the other batch processes. At the same time interest extends from Chemical to Pharmaceutical and Biological processes. The reason that we are able to address such a variety of processes is because our research objectives are generic and methodological and have wide applicability.

Besides the obvious possibility of involving several Tufts faculty in its research activities, the SRI has secured the collaboration of three prominent and internationally acclaimed faculty members:
