Keynote: Nobel Laureate, Dr Frances Arnold & Kick-off for Life Sciences Week

We are excited to welcome 2018 Chemistry Nobel-Laureate, Dr. Frances Arnold back to Pittsburgh as the Keynote Speaker for Pittsburgh's Life Sciences Week.

Frances Arnold is the Linus Pauling Professor of Chemical Engineering, Bioengineering and Biochemistry and Director of the Rosen Bioengineering Center at the California Institute of Technology, where she has been on the faculty since 1986. Recognized most recently with the 2018 Nobel Prize in Chemistry, Arnold pioneered directed protein evolution and has used those methods for applications in alternative energy, chemicals, and medicine. Directed evolution is now used worldwide to make enzymes for consumer products, textiles, gene sequencing, chemical synthesis, clinical diagnostics, drug discovery and manufacturing, and more. Arnold also received the Charles Stark Draper Prize of the US National Academy of Engineering in 2011, the US National Medal of Technology and Innovation from President Obama in 2013, and the Millennium Technology Prize in 2016. Elected to all three US National Academies of Science, Medicine, and Engineering, she is also an international fellow of the UK Royal Academy of Engineering.
