With support from the National Science Foundation, chemist Kent Kirshenbaum and his team at New York University are engineering molecules to mimic the shapes, structures, and functions of natural proteins. The ultimate goal of this biomimetic chemistry research is to develop a reliable way to build synthetic proteins that can be put to work at the industrial scale. Part of the "Science Nation" series.
