Georgia Tech

Corey J. Wilson is a Professor in the School of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering at the Georgia Institute of Technology. He is the director and the lead investigator of the National Science Foundation’s Growing Convergence Research Program for Biomolecular Systems Engineering at Georgia Tech. Prior to joining Georgia Tech, he was an associate professor at Yale University in the Department of Chemical and Environmental Engineering. His research program seeks to engineer novel synthetic biological systems of bespoke function for high-impact applications. Current efforts are focused on the area of engineering cooperative systems of functional proteins and cognate genetic elements to create intelligent microorganisms, next-generation biological security and bio-cryptography tools, living therapeutics, and next-generation biosynthesis and biomanufacturing technologies. He was recently elected to the American Institute for Medical and Biological Engineers for his efforts in developing the field of biomolecular systems engineering.
