Dr. Bryan Berger named a Class of 1961 Professor

Dr. Bryan Berger, an Associate Professor in the Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering, has been selected to receive a Class of 1961 Professorship for 2016-2018.

This professorship recognizes recently promoted Associate Professors for distinction in research, teaching and service at Lehigh. Selection for this professorship is based on departmental nominations and is decided by a university committee. Dr. Bryan Berger joined Lehigh University in 2010, after a NIH NRSA postdoctoral fellowship in the Dept. of Biochemistry and Biophysics at the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine. He received his PhD from the University of Delaware (2006), and his BSc degree from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (2000), both in Chemical Engineering. He is currently the P. C. Rossin Assistant Professor of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering.

His research focuses on design and development of novel biochemical tools to control biological systems. Particular focuses are in transmembrane signal transduction and mechanisms of bacterial virulence. Additionally, he has developed unique, cell-based approaches to the design and scalable biosynthesis of advanced functional materials, having been highlighted with a 2013 SBIR/STTR National Innovation Award and a 2015 NSF CAREER award. His work is supported through grants from the NSF and NIH.

Dr. Berger will be formally recognized with this professorship at Founder's Day on Friday, October 7, 2016.
