Health, Science and Technology Building: A Hub for Interdisciplinary Research

The largest building on the Asa Packer campus—and the largest Lehigh has ever built—HST provides the most modern, up-to-date environment for interdisciplinary research on the university’s campus.

The Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering Department offers many other advanced research facilities to our students.

  • Baltrusaitis Lab - This Lab specializes on sustainable catalytic processes of natural gas and biomass component catalytic transformations.

  • IMBT Unit Ops Laboratory - The undergraduate chemical processing laboratory.

  • Laboratory for Particle Mixing and Self-Organization Research focusing on convective deposition, suspension rheology, field-driven assembly, granular dynamics, Applications involving coatings, LEDs/OLEDs, membranes, microfluidics, solar cells, biotechnology/clinical diagnosis, granular mixing/segregation, vibrofluidization.

  • Operando Molecular Spectroscopy and Catalysis Research Lab - Catalysis research has always been to be able to ‘see’ the nature of the catalytic active sites and the reaction intermediates under realistic reaction conditions to allow direct correlation of molecular/electronic structures with catalyst performance (activity & selectivity) and reaction kinetics.

  • Jagota Group Lab - The organizing theme for our work is the study of problems in the processing and properties of materials, especially those related to bioengineering. We combine theory and experiments in our work. Our current interests include hybrids of biological molecules and nanomaterials, biomimetic design of surface mechanical properties, and the mechanics of soft materials.
