Researchers at the Georgia Institute of Technology’s Center for Chemical Evolution (CCE) are trying to unravel the mystery of how prebiotic molecules gave rise to life.

Launched in 2010 with a $20 million, five-year grant from the National Science Foundation and NASA, the center is comprised of researchers from multiple institutions led by Georgia Tech’s Nick Hud, director of the CCE, associate director of the Petit Institute for Bioengineering and Bioscience, and professor in the School of Chemistry and Biochemistry.

CCE, whose funding was renewed earlier this year, continues to push the envelope of prebiotic chemistry and make advances toward understanding how life took shape on Earth. 

Read all about the CCE in the current edition of Georgia Tech’s Research Horizons.
