Gale Wichmann, Senior Director, Strategic Partnerships at Amyris, will be giving a CSB seminar, “Turning Sustainable Biology into a Sustainable Business: Real Life Lessons from the Synthetic Biology Company Amyris,” on the Evanston campus.

After 20 years of existence, Amyris continues to be a leader in the world of synthetic biology.  Amyris has gone from a stary-eyed start-up to a company that has successfully manufactured and commercialized 14 molecules. Along the way we’ve learned, sometimes painfully, what it actually takes to successfully commercialize a synthetic biology product. This talk will review Amyris, our technology, and the lessons we’ve learned that are critical for commercial success

Details for the seminar are as follows:

  • Date: Thursday, March 7th
  • Time: 4:00-5:00pm
  • Location: Evanston Campus, Tech LR2 Auditorium
