Jay Keasling, Professor of Bioengineering and Chemical Engineering, was named one of Rolling Stone Magazine’s 100 Agents of Change.
Jay made the list of 40 “people reinventing America” for his advances in synthetic biology, engineering microbes to produce cheap malaria drugs and working to synthesize biofuels. Also on the list were other visionaries like Al Gore, Robert F. Kennedy Jr., Bill Gates, and President Barack Obama.
Read the full list at Rolling Stone.
Way to go Jay!
