Institute for Protein Design

Naturally occurring proteins solve the challenges faced during evolution.
- We face new challenges today. -
The IPD aims to design a whole new world of synthetic proteins
to address challenges in medicine, energy, and technology.

WRF-IPD Innovation Fellows

With a very generous $8 M gift from the Washington Research Foundation (WRF), the IPD has launched the WRF-IPD Innovation Fellows Program supporting research partnerships between the IPD and other Seattle-area research institutes or UW departments.  We are recruiting exceptionally talented researchers who have just finished their PhD to join expert laboratories at local institutions where they will apply protein design methods to current health, energy, and materials related research problems.
