Metabolic engineering by Prof. Greg Stephanopoulos

Professor Stephanopoulos' current research focuses on metabolic engineering and its applications to the production of biochemicals and specialty chemicals, the rigorous evaluation of cell physiology using advanced isotopic methods, the metabolism and physiology of mammalian cells with emphasis on obesity and diabetes, and bioinformatics and functional genomics, whereby new genomics-based technologies are applied to the elucidation of cell physiology and metabolic engineering. Professor Stephanopoulos has co-authored or -edited 5 books and published approximately 240 papers and 19 patents. He has supervised 38 graduate and 32 post-doctoral students and is presently the editor-in-chief of the journal Metabolic Engineering and serves on the Editorial Boards of 7 scientific journals. He has been recognized with the Dreyfus Foundation Teacher Scholar Award (1982), Excellence in Teaching Award (1984), Technical Achievement Award of the AIChE (1984), PYI Award (1984), AIChE-FPBE Division Award (1997), M.J. Johnson Award of ACS (2001), and the R.H. Wilhelm Award in Chemical Reaction Engineering of the AIChE (2001). In 1992 he chaired the FPBE Division of AIChE and was elected a Founding Fellow of the American Institute for Medical and Biological Engineering. In 2002 he received the Merck Award in Metabolic Engineering and was elected to the Board of Directors of AIChE. In 2003, he was elected to the National Academy of Engineering (NAE) and recently was awarded an honorary doctorate degree (doctor technices honoris causa) by the Technical University of Denmark (2005).
