Georg Seelig Receives 2010 CAREER Award

Photo of Georg SeeligAssistant Professor Georg Seelig has received a 2010 CAREER award from the National Science Foundation for his proposal titled "Nucleic acid circuitry for programming gene expression."

The focus of this research will be to engineer synthetic regulatory circuits that can analyze complex cellular states, and based on that analysis autonomously control gene expression. This research will help further understanding of information processing in biological networks, and may potentially lead to new gene therapy approaches in the treatment of disease.

Congratulations, Georg!
