DNA is the new silicon.
– Jean Peccoud
Today’s most pressing challenges are the result on an unsustainable reliance on synthetic chemistries. Synthetic biology will provide innovative paths to enduring health, food security, and sustainable energy. Traditional methods in biology are inadequate to face the magnitude and urgency of the solutions needed. These challenges call for a cultural revolution that leverages contributions from biology, engineering, manufacturing, and computer sciences to catalyze the emergence of creative solutions.

“Before working as a graduate student in Dr. Peccoud’s Lab I was an undergraduate student in his senior design group. Over the past year I have gained such valuable research experience and witnessed the vast amount of coordination it takes to run a high throughput lab. My time working for the Peccoud Lab was a big growth period. Every member of the lab is encouraging and passionate about what they are doing. Working in the lab was a challenge for me and the result of that was an improvement in my studies and research skills. I will miss being part of the Peccoud Lab and the amazing work that they do.”
“I was a visiting graduate student in Dr. Peccoud’s group for over a year. I had the opportunity to learn a great deal about a field in which I had no previous experience. Dr. Peccoud excels in putting together diverse groups of people to work on interdisciplinary projects. He is both dedicated and passionate about his work, and he inspires and energizes people in his group to do excellent work. I enjoyed my time at VBI and hope to work with Dr. Peccoud again in the future.”
