The inaugural Subra Suresh Distinguished Lecture will be presented on May 19, 2022 by Dr. Frances Arnold, the Linus Pauling Professor of Chemical Engineering, Bioengineering and Biochemistry at the California Institute of Technology. The Subra Suresh Distinguished Lecture is given by leaders in the broad intellectual domain of multidisciplinary science and engineering, and Dr. Arnold’s work epitomizes the brilliance of what can be accomplished in this domain. Dr. Arnold’s contributions span engineering, chemistry, biology, and medicine, and she was chosen by the Selection Committee for her deep and broad contributions to the field of directed protein evolution. Arnold pioneered directed protein evolution and has used those methods for applications in alternative energy, chemicals, and medicine.
