NAVIGATORS & THE CURIOUS

 

Please Join Us for Cocktails & Hors d’oeuvres

Speaker:  José Avalos, Universidad Iberoamericana ’96

Assistant Professor, Chemical & Biological Engineering
The Andlinger Center, Princeton University

 

   “Engineering Microbes to Sustain Planet Earth”

Advances in synthetic biology, such as the development of engineered metabolisms, biosensors and genetic circuits, have revolutionized mankind’s ability to monitor and control cellular functions in the manufacture of chemicals and materials.  With these new tools, previously unsolvable problems in energy, the environment, industry and sustainability, can now be addressed. Following years of study at Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, Rockefeller, MIT and the Whitehead Institute, José Avalos is well-positioned to take us into the world of microbial engineering.  He will explain how it is transforming production of:  the chemicals we use; the fuels we burn; the clothes we wear; the food we eat; and the materials we employ.

He is from Miami, FL and received his Bachelor of Science in Physics & Mathematics from Furman University in 2014. He has also served as a Resident Graduate Student at Forbes College since 2015. His thesis has focused on ways of testing dark matter and dark energy theories with astrophysical data.

2018 Annual Meeting & Election

 

 

Notice to

All Members of PA3

 

 

 

Election of a PA3 Director will be held at the annual meeting on November 7, 2018.

[Note: An invitation to the meeting will be sent separately.]

Under the Association’s by-laws, only members present at the meeting are eligible to vote.

Following the resignation of one director of the Association earlier this year, the President, acting pursuant to the by-laws in consultation with the Executive Committee, appointed Warren Suen*99 to fill the vacancy on the board as an interim director.

The President and Executive Committee now recommend that Warren Suen *99 be elected to a full term as director of the Association.


A copy of the by-laws of PA3 governing elections and the responsibilities of the officers and directors is available on our website under the governance tab.

Mr. Suen's biography follows: 

Warren Suen  *99    

I have a Ph.D. in chemistry, and my dissertation was on the structural characterization of biological macromolecules. I am currently a Senior Scientist in a consumer specialty company located in Bridgewater, NJ. I have been involved in Princeton alumni activities for more than a decade, starting by volunteering as an ASC interviewer and for Special Olympics and Isles, Inc. About five years ago I started serving as the PA3 Graduate Alumni Co-Chair and then as a board member of APGA. These experiences provide me with great opportunities to interact with many bright students and fellow alumni from all around world. In particular I enjoy working on science- and technology-related initiatives, and have been serving as a judge on Princeton Research Day and piloting a science education program for local school kids of PA3 families. Along with my busy schedule of work, family, and volunteer activities, I enjoy playing tennis, swimming and doing some yardwork.
