Michael Jewett

Michael Jewett’s lab has made seminal advances that established the field of cell-free biotechnology, enabling on-demand biomanufacturing, fast and portable diagnostics, and next-generation educational kits. In addition, he has engineered tethered ribosomes to establish the first fully orthogonal ribosome-mRNA system in cells that makes it possible to diversify, evolve, and repurpose the ribosome to synthesize new classes of medicines and evolvable matter.
