CCE researchers hypothesize that, while the first biopolymers may have resembled those known in life today, they would need unique properties to survive, flourish, and evolve on the early Earth. These proto-biopolymers and the environments where they emerged define the Center for Chemical Evolution’s research themes.
CCE brings together a diverse group of scientists with backgrounds from several disciplines of chemistry and chemical engineering. We anticipate discoveries made within the Center will significantly contribute to this field, as well as to the greater scientific community through our peer-reviewed publications.
