Lecture by Professor Romas Kazlauskas, University of Minnesota

“Using ideas from evolution to engineer enzymes for sustainable chemistry”
Thursday 14 November at 14:00, Lecture room FB42, AlbaNova, Roslagstullsbacken 21, KTH
Romas Kazlauskas has studied catalysis since his college days when he worked at a company that made catalysts for paint drying. During his Ph.D. studies at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, he studied organometallic catalysts, then switched to biocatalysis during his postdoctoral studies with George Whitesides at Harvard University. He has worked in industry - General Electric Company on biocatalysis to make monomers for plastics. He worked for 15 years at McGill University in Montreal, Canada and has worked at the University of Minnesota since 2003. He has been a visiting professor at KTH and in Germany and South Korea. His current research interests are engineering enzymes for green synthesis of pharmaceuticals & fuels.
Professor Kazlauskas is visiting KTH to receive an honorary doctorate on Friday November 15th. Welcome! /Per Berglund, Vice Dean of Faculty at KTH
