Welcome to the Dorval Lab
for Biologically-Derived Materials & Devices!
We work at the intersection of materials science, chemical engineering, synthetic biology
The group is led by
We combine biological structures with organic molecules and inorganic materials. Using micro-organisms, proteins, and other biological scaffolds, we aim at assembling materials with novel physical properties, and at constructing functional devices.
We are especially interested in developing novel nanobiomaterials for energy storage and harvesting, bio-energy devices, and environmental and biological sensors.
