The keynotes by Justin Gallivan are centred on the power of bacteria and how the implications of genetically engineering them can prove to be beneficial for the human body.
Gallivan graduated from the University of Illinois with a science degree and pursued a Ph.D. in chemistry at Caltech. His areas of expertise include discotic liquid crystals, cation-π interaction and molecular neuroscience.
His subsequent work included more research on genetically engineering proteins and synthetic polymers, still at Caltech. In 2002, Gallivan joined Emory University as an Assistant Professor in the department of Chemistry. He is currently teaching there now as an Associate Professor. He has received awards recognizing his ability as a researcher and a teacher, like the PopTech Science and Public and Camille Dreyfus Teacher-Scholar Award.
Armed with years of experience in the field of genetic engineering, the keynotes by Justin Gallivan unveil insightful findings on the practical uses of bacteria and cellular manipulation.
