"We are a diverse group of chemists, biologists and engineers that utilize synthetic biology and biotechnology to address challenges in sustainability, human health and environmental health."Bryan Berger, Associate Professor
Bryan received his BS in chemical engineering from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, and his PhD in chemical engineering from the University of Delaware. He was a post-doctoral fellow in the department of biochemistry & biophysics at the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine. Currently Bryan is associate professor of chemical engineering with a joint appointment in biomedical engineering.
The Berger lab uses synthetic biology, structural biology and protein engineering to develop models of biochemical/biological processes, and uses these models to design new tools and technologies. This work is highly interdisciplinary, involving close collaborations with clinical, government and industrial research groups.
