What makes an enzyme such a potent catalyst? Prof. Hilvert has spent a career understanding biological catalysis in aqueous systems, in the context of both natural enzymes and engineered or synthetic constructs. Most recently he has made significant progress in the design and in-vitro evolution of artificial enzymes that test our understanding of the structural and reaction energy landscapes needed for catalysis. Come and hear from Don, one of the foremost thinkers in this area, how close we are to designing enzymes from scratch.
