Energy Research at the University of Washington

David Baker

Energy Research Area: Design of proteins for fuel-cell catalysis, Solar hydrogen production and nanopatterning of materials.

School of Medicine

The Baker lab specializes in new computational techniques for protein structure prediction and design. Current areas of research specific to clean energy include design of proteins and protein/small-molecule hybrids for catalysis of hydrogen production/utilization, and design of self-assembling protein scaffolds for fuel cell coatings and patterning of nanomaterials.
