Dr. Corey J. Wilson

Associate Professor in the School of Chemical & Biomolecular Engineering
Georgia Institute of Technology

Dr. Corey J. Wilson is a King-Chávez-Parks Professor in the School of Chemical & Biomolecular Engineering at the Georgia Institute of Technology, and is the Director and lead investigator of the NSF Growing Convergence Research Program for Biomolecular Systems Engineering. Prior to his current appointment, he was an Associate Professor at Yale University in the Department of Chemical and Environmental Engineering. Prior to his first faculty appointment he was a Gordon E. Moore Postdoctoral Scholar at the California Institute of Technology. Dr. Wilson’s research program seeks to engineer novel, non-natural biological systems of bespoke function for high-impact applications. Dr. Wilson’s lab leverages a unique blend of iterative protein engineering and genetic engineering to design novel synthetic biological systems. 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 & bio-cryptography tools, living therapeutics, and next-generation biosynthesis & biomanufacturing technologies. He was recently elected to the American Institute for Medical and Biological Engineers (AIMBE) Class of 2021. Dr. Wilson is also the Director of a next-generation biomanufacturing center at GT in collaboration with industrial partner BASF.
