Northwestern’s Center for Synthetic Biology (CSB) is one of the global hubs for innovation in its field. A prestigious grant promises to push the program even further.
The National Science Foundation awarded $3 million to support a new graduate-level training program that focuses on PhD students. Northwestern Engineering’s Julius Lucks, associate professor of chemical and biological engineering, is the principal investigator. Co-principal investigators include Jewett, Neha Kamat, assistant professor of biomedical engineering, and Danielle Tullman-Ercek, associate professor of chemical and biological engineering, along with Susanna Calkins, director of faculty initiatives for Northwestern’s Searle Center for Advancing Learning and Teaching.
