WHAT IS THE EBI?

ENERGY BIOSCIENCES INSTITUTE

  • 10 year $500M commitment.

  • Unique integration from crops to fuel and environment to law

  • Does not fund PI’s labs, but funds PI’s to participate within the EBI (now >100 staff).

  • New model for academic-business collaboration.

Does it work?

Over 220 IDFs, 13 patents filed, 160 articles in ISI listed journals, including Science, several graduate student awards.

62 Faculty Pis or co-Pis, 138 Full time Aps, Support staff, PDs, RAs

First 5 Ph.D. graduate students from EBI – Proctor & Gamble, Monsanto, BP, Gates Foundation
