UC Riverside bioengineer receives high honor from chemical engineers
Date:6/26/2008

cr.edu/">Bourns College of Engineering. The center, which is in the early stages of development, will intersect with industry and provide students with a wide range of research opportunities. It also will embrace an interdisciplinary approach to bioengineering and include faculty across the campus to foster biocellular engineering as a research emphasis.

"The future impact of bioengineering lies in learning how to engineer and adapt the fine-tuned intricacies of intracellular structure to direct the cell's behavior towards new and desired outcomes," Schultz said. "This is potentially a new and exciting area in bioengineering, and UCR is well positioned to excel in biocellular engineering."

Schultz started his academic career in the Department of Chemical Engineering at the University of Michigan (1964-1987), which he also chaired. He came to UCR in 2004 from the University of Pittsburgh (1987-2003), where he initiated and chaired the Department of Bioengineering, and organized the Center for Biotechnology and Bioengineering. Upon arriving at UCR, he spearheaded the development of the Department of Bioengineering, the fifth academic department in the Bourns College of Engineering, and structured its undergraduate and graduate programs.

"UCR has a rich history in engineering and biology, and a strong program in bioengineering is the inevitable next step for us," Schultz said. "The campus is gearing up for a new medical school. Given how large a role technology plays in medicine, I fully expect bioengineering to play an increasingly crucial role on campus."

Schultz's career accomplishments are extensive. His research has led to the development of techniques that could help millions of people, especially those living with diabetes. He is credited with developing a sensor that could eliminate the need for diabetics to use needles for blood glucose checks. He also is known internati
