Chemistry graduate students Jeovanna Rios and Jennifer Hennigan discuss an experiment in Mike Lynch's biomedical engineering lab in the Chesterfield Building. The Chesterfield Building, a cigarette-factory-turned-research-hub, is home to collaboration-friendly lab, office and conference spaces for parts of Duke University School of Medicine and the Pratt School of Engineering. Duke leases about 100,000 square feet of space in the downtown building. The lab is focused on genetically engineering microbes to shut off their growth circuits and turn on new pathways to produce different compounds—improving production of biofuels, pharmacological molecules and industrial chemicals.
