Date:5/11/2012

t modalities as well as small molecule drug development efforts to combat malaria.

In the other project, Tyo and Joshua Leonard, an assistant professor of chemical and biological engineering, will work to engineer yeast-based biosensors that identify protein biomarkers in samples like blood and urine. An array of yeast strains could serve as a low-cost, in-home device providing patients with a panel of diagnostics to improve treatment and diagnosis in resource-poor settings.

Each project will receive an 18-month grant of $100,000. Successful projects have an opportunity to receive a second grant of up to $1 million.

"Grand Challenges Explorations encourages individuals worldwide to expand the pipeline of ideas where creative, unorthodox thinking is most urgently needed," said Chris Wilson, director of Global Health Discovery and Translational Sciences at the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. "We're excited to provide additional funding for select grantees so that they can continue to advance their idea towards global impact."

Synthetic biology researchers at Northwestern are leading a new wave of design-based biological engineering, exploring three major areas: biomolecular networks, cellular devices and therapeutics, and approaches that expand the chemistry of life. The engineers, scientists and physicians represent three schools -- McCormick, Weinberg and the Feinberg School of Medicine.
