Assistant Professor, Biochemistry, UCLA
Sriram Kosuri is developing next-generation DNA synthesis technologies for use in bioengineering. He and his collaborators have created new processes that are faster, more accurate, and significantly less expensive than current methods for synthesizing genes. Kosuri has authored several patents and patent applications related to both biofuels and DNA synthesis technologies, and has published in journals including Nature Biotechnology and Science. Using Kosuri’s new approaches, cells and organisms can be more efficiently engineered to have novel and complex capabilities, such as producing vaccines and drugs, regenerating injured tissues, or cleaning up pollution.
