Could the tiniest organisms be the foundries of the future? Angela Belcher thinks so. The MIT materials scientist engineers viruses to manipulate compounds at the molecular level. A 2004 MacArthur Fellowship (a.k.a. “genius grant”) winner, she’s also a cofounder of Cambridge, MA’s Cambrios Technologies, which applies her work to everything from lighting to microchip fabrication.
What do you do? "We look at how nature processes materials and then evolve organisms to make new types of materials."
But you don’t like being called a nanotechnologist? "I’m a materials chemist who works on nanosize materials."
