We are in the departments of Bioengineering and Chemical Engineering at Stanford University. Our research has two broad thrusts: producing hydrogen sustainably with biology, and developing virus-like particle technology for medical applications.
Our lab has extensive expertise in several technologies that enable these projects: metabolic engineering, cell-free protein synthesis, bioconjugations, and protein evolution. We also do more fundamental research to improve and expand the scope of these technologies.
- Biohydrogen from engineered cyanobacteria
- Biohydrogen from cellulosic biomass through engineered cell free extracts
- Engineering and Maturation of [FeFe] Hydrogenase from Clostridium Pasteuriamum
Virus Like Particles
- VLPs as vaccine scaffolds
- VLPs for use as a drug delivery vehicle (including screening capabilities)
- VLPs for use in medical imaging/diagnostics
Past research projects:
- Protein Engineering (EGFR evolution)
- Improving cell-free protein synthesis through emulsions
- Non-natural amino acid incorporation
