Frances Arnold '79

Steve Anderson Photography

Frances Arnold ’79 is something of a superhero in the world of directed evolution. According to one of her peers, “She hijacks biological enzymes and makes them do her bidding.”

Arnold’s work could lead to more robust MRI scans, safer pesticides, drug manufacturing without toxic chemicals and biofuels to replace fossil fuels.

The award-winning Caltech professor will discuss her work in an exclusive talk with LA-area Princeton alums. Don’t miss it!
