The Chemical Biology of Energy Production

2009-10 GC Seed Grant

The depletion of global reserves of fossil fuels and the related problem of CO2 driven climate change provide increasingly visible and visceral incentives for students to pursue educations in technically relevant areas.

Early exposure to biochemical and biotechnological approaches to the energy problem in the context of fundamental principles of chemistry, biology and physics will increase engagement at a technical level and enable students to go farther in this critical field, while also attracting more students into majors in chemistry, microbiology and bioengineering.
