MSI Researchers Win DOE Grant for Biofuel Research

MSI researchers are on a team that was recently awarded a $2.2 million grant from the Department of Energy for a project investigating using bacteria to produce biofuel. The lead investigator, Professor Larry Wackett (BMBB), is an MSI Associate Fellow and Principal Investigator. Other researchers on this project with MSI ties are Regents Professor Lanny Schmidt (MSI Associate Fellow) and Assistant Professor Aditya Bahn (MSI Principal Investigator), both of the Department of Chemical Engineering and Materials Science.
