Frances Arnold’s research focuses on protein engineering by directed evolution, with applications in alternative energy, chemicals, and medicine. Arnold pioneered the directed evolution of proteins, mimicking Darwinian evolution in the laboratory to create new biological molecules. Her laboratory developed methods that are used widely in industry and basic science to engineer proteins with new and useful properties.Her recent honors include the Sackler Prize in Convergence Research (2017), the Millennium Technology Prize (2016), and the US National Medal of Technology and Innovation (2013). She is member of all three US National Academies (Engineering, Science, and Medicine).
