David Lynn
The Dawn of Life

Charles Darwin (1809-1882) conjoined decades of keen field observations with his investigative spirit and the knowledge of his day to produce what some consider the most significant scientific works ever authored. As relevant as ever, Darwin’s worldview offers a basis for understanding – and solving – the 21st century’s ecological crisis.
Borrowing from the words of Theodosius Dobzhansky, the great evolutionary biologist, “Nothing in biology makes sense except in the light of evolution.”

Dr. David Lynn's original research into the chemistry of life's beginnings has brought him wide recognition well outside the scientific community.
The David G. Lynn Group at Emory University works to understand the structures and forces that enable supramolecular self-assembly, how chemical information can be stored and translated into new molecular entities, and how the forces of evolution can be harnessed in new structures with new function. Such knowledge offers tremendous promise for discoveries in fields as diverse as drug design and genome engineering, pathogenesis and genome evolution, functional nanoscale materials and the origins of living systems. He has served as Chair of Emory's Department of Chemistry since 2006.
