At an event dedicating the Omenn-Darling Bioengineering Institute, Princeton University emphasized its commitment to innovative research in the life sciences and engineering, informed by collaboration with Princeton’s world-class experts in the humanities, ethics and policy.

Members of the Princeton University community gathered in the Friend Center on May 6 for a dedication event for the new institute, which included a guest lecture and panel discussion on the vast potential for bioengineering inquiry to benefit medicine, healthcare and the environment.

A transformative gift in the Venture Forward campaign from alumni Gilbert Omenn ’61 and Martha Darling *70 named the institute, which is promoting new directions in research, education and innovation at the intersection of engineering and the life sciences while serving as the home for new interdisciplinary bioengineering postdoctoral, graduate and undergraduate programs.
