Research conducted through the HBBE is categorised by three themes: | Building Metabolism - which aims to develop a new generation of microbial technologies that will act as building metabolisms - processing waste and generating energy and useful products; | Living Construction - which will foster a new generation of bulk-engineered living materials that are intelligently synthesised and activated using microbial processes; | Microbial Environments - where the objective is to better understand and computationally predict the interaction between the built environment and microbes and to cultivate healthy environments.
