Beichen LiuUndergraduate Student

Beichen is an undergraduate senior from the suburbs of Chicago, Illinois and is majoring in chemical engineering and biomedical engineering. She is currently working on building a library of protein-polymer conjugate structures, as well as using Protein-ATRP on Reversible Immobilization Support (PARIS) to develop a high throughput process of protein-polymer conjugation. Other research areas she is interested in include the modification of proteins and polymers to enhance drug delivery, and the application of nanotechnology to biological systems. Outside of lab and school, Beichen enjoys going to museums and trying out new restaurants/new food.

Discovery at the rich interface of chemistry, biology, and material science to incorporate
biological molecules and polymers for the creation of multifunctional materials.
