Why are you interested in protein engineering?
Nature has created a stunning array of enzymes and biological systems, capable of performing highly sophisticated functions. I am interested in tracking Nature’s molecular footsteps. Through understanding Nature’s design secrets, I hope to develop biocatalytic systems that suit industrial needs. My passion for protein engineering is inspired by some of the greatest protein scientists in the world (Prof. Sir Alan R. Fersht, Prof. Frances H. Arnold, and Prof. Ulrich Schwaneberg).
