George Church, PhD

George is Co-founder and Scientific Advisor of EnPlusOne Bio. He leads Synthetic Biology at the Wyss Institute, where he oversees the directed evolution of molecules, polymers and whole genomes to create new tools with applications in regenerative medicine and bioproduction of chemicals. Among his recent work at the Wyss, is development of a technology for synthesizing whole genes and engineering whole genomes, far faster, more accurate, and less costly than current methods. George is widely recognized for his innovative contributions to genomic science and his many pioneering contributions to chemistry and biomedicine. In 1984, he developed the first direct genomic sequencing method, which resulted in the first
