Teachers work in the laboratory of Professor Michael Jewett in the Department of Chemical and Biological Engineering at Northwestern University. The Jewett lab is at the cutting edge of synthetic biology and develops cell-free biological technology for biomanufacturing life-saving therapeutics, advanced materials, and sustainable chemicals, both quickly and on-demand. For more information about the Jewett Lab visit their website.
