The Foundation’s 2017 Doing a World of Good podcast series kicks off by featuring Dr. Frances Arnold, distinguished professor of chemical engineering, bioengineering, and biochemistry at Caltech. Dr. Arnold has expanded the expectations of what chemical engineering can achieve, taking her engineering expertise in systems and processes and applying it directly to the world of biochemistry.
In the podcast, Frances talks about her career journey, from her initial pursuit of mechanical and aerospace engineering at Princeton to her shift to chemical engineering at Berkeley, which ultimately lead to her work in directed evolution. Frances's work in this area promises to use biological systems to create more effective and environmentally responsible products for everyday use.
