Here is an intro to FAME:
"The Center for Fundamental and Applied Molecular Evolution (FAME) is a jointly sponsored initiative between Emory University and Georgia Institute of Technology. Established in November 2002, its primary scientific goals are the studies of evolutionary principles and their application to the synthesis of novel molecules and materials in the laboratory. Highly interdisciplinary, the group is composed of scientists drawn from seven academic departments and a variety of backgrounds including chemistry, biology, biochemistry and chemical engineering."

Nick Hud was born in Los Angeles, California. He received his B.S. degree in Physics from Loyola Marymount University and his Ph.D. from the University of California, Davis. From 1992 to 1995 he was a postdoctoral fellow in the Biology and Biotechnology Research Program at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, and from 1995 to 1998 he was an NIH postdoctoral fellow in biophysics at UCLA. He joined the faculty at Georgia Tech in the summer of 1999. The research in his laboratory focuses on understanding the structure and assembly of nucleic acids. Prof. Hud currently serves as Principal Investigator of the NSF Chemical Bonding Center "The Origins Project" and as Co-Director of the Georgia Tech-Emory U. Center for Fundamental and Applied Molecular Evolution (FAME).
Nick will speak to us about his research and the work that FAME is doing.
