Genetically Evolved Technology: Luke Bawazer at TEDxTalks




Luke Bawazer works in Fiona Meldrum’s laboratory at University of Leeds, where he conducts research at the interface of chemistry, materials science, and synthetic biology. His work is inspired by living organisms, such as bones, teeth, and seashells. These biominerals will help us create new materials technologies using genetic engineering. With synthetic biology we can now make and evolve synthetic genes that encode new inorganic composite materials with useful electronic functions. Luke has recently been highlighted for his work towards genetically evolving semiconductors. He has received his PhD in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology from Dan Morse’s laboratory at the University of California focusing on the directed laboratory evolution of biomineralizing enzymes.
