Research Motivation

The Wood group attends the annual CBE Honors and Awards BanquetThe Wood group at the annual CBE Honors and Awards BanquetOur work seeks to develop highly useful biotechnologies through engineering proteins for specific applications. So far, these applications include new ways to purify recombinant proteins, bacterial biosensors that incorporate human drug targets, and new capabilities in drug discovery and drug delivery.

In May 2019, Wood was featured as an expert in Genetic Engineering & Biotechnology News (GEN) in the article "Microbial Culture Systems for Bioprocessing," discussing the challenges and choices in microbial production, including type of organism, optimization of medium, and upscaling of production systems.
