Prof. Keith E.J. Tyo has published a white paper entitled “Synthetic Biology for Global Health: A Problem-Driven Approach to Healthcare Innovation.” It lays out plans to invite the best minds in the Synthetic Biology community to better understand the problems in healthcare delivery for the extremely impoverished. The proposed program would enable technological breakthrough that would impact the lives of the most vulnerable people on the planet.
Alexandra de Paz joins the Tyo lab as a PhD student in the Interdepartmental Biological Sciences program. Alexandra did her undergraduate education at the University of Florida in Bimolecular Engineering.
Alexandra will be developing methods for directed evolution and high throughput screening.
Grace has won a Northwestern Undergraduate Research Grant (URG) for her proposal on engineering E. coli induction using carbon limitation signaling. Congrats Grace!
Keith will deliver the keynote address at the Chicago Area Undergraduate Research Symposium (CAURS) tomorrow at University of Illinois, Chicago.
Excited to see the students work!
Congrats to Michael Reddick who earned a NSF Graduate Fellowship!
Lindsay Pietz has won the Cellular and Molecular Biology category at the Illinois Junior Academy of Science (IJAS) Competition based on her work in the Tyo lab. As one of the top 5 finalists from a group of 300, she will compete in the international science fair competiton, Intel ISEF.
