Institute for Protein Design

The Institute for Protein Design (IPD) aims to design a new world of proteins to address
21st century challenges in medicine, energy, and technology.

The Institute for Protein Design (IPD) at the University of Washington is working to design a new world of proteins to address 21st century challenges in medicine, energy and technology. The IPD is led by Dr. David Baker, the internationally recognized leader in protein structure prediction and de novo protein design. Our teams are working on translating new protein designs into real world applications with commercial utility as the basis for the formation of new biotechnology companies in Washington State.
