Overview
Locations

Renowned biological and materials engineer Angela Belcher will present the annual Joseph Priestley Award Celebration Lecture at Dickinson, “Giving New Life to Materials for Energy, the Environment and Medicine.” The event is free and open to the public.

Belcher will discuss the possibilities the field of engineering biology provides for working with specialized materials for energy, environmental remediation and cancer diagnostics and treatment. She will address conditions under which organisms first evolved to make materials and scientific approaches move beyond naturally evolved materials to genetically imprint advanced technologies. She will draw from examples in lithium- and sodium-ion batteries, lithium-air batteries, environmental clean-up and ovarian cancer imaging and treatment.
