"This tremendous honor is really a testament to the dedicated, talented and driven team that we've assembled," said Dr. Renninger. "I can't think of a better environment to be working in than here at Amyris as we pursue our technology's full potential in areas like sustainable energy."
Renninger brings to Amyris a cross disciplinary understanding of both the micro-world of strain engineering and the macro-world of chemical engineering. He received a doctorate in Chemical Engineering from the University of California, Berkeley focusing on the metabolic engineering of bacterial cells for chemical transformations. Renninger received his undergraduate training in Chemical Engineering from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, while simultaneously receiving an M.S. in Environmental Engineering.
"The TR35 honors young innovators for accomplishments that are poised to have a dramatic impact on the world as we know it," said Jason Pontin, editor in chief and publisher of Technology Review magazine. "We celebrate their success and look forward to their continued advancement of technology in their respective fields."
Renninger and the other TR35 winners for 2007 will be featured in the September issue of Technology Review magazine and honored at the Emerging Technologies Conference to be held at MIT September 25-27, 2007.
