Jim De Yoreo is Chief Scientist for Materials Synthesis and Simulation Across Scales at PNNL and an Affiliate Professor of Materials Science and Engineering and of chemistry at the University of Washington. He received his Ph.D. in Physics from Cornell University in 1985. Following post-doctoral work at Princeton University, he became a member of the technical staff at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory in 1989, where he held numerous positions including Director of the Biosecurity and Nanosciences Laboratory, and Deputy Director of the Laboratory Science and Technology Office. He joined Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory in 2007 where he served as Deputy and Interim Director of the Molecular Foundry. DeYoreo is a member of the MRS, APS, ACS and the AACG. He is an Editor for Bioinspired Materials, Associate Editor in Chief for Frontiers of Materials Science, and a member of the AACG Executive Committee. He has served as President and Board Member of the MRS and on committees for the National Academy of Sciences, the Department of Energy, and Congress. De Yoreo's research has spanned a wide range of materials-related disciplines, focusing most recently on in situ AFM and TEM investigations of interactions, assembly, and crystallization in biomolecular and biomineral systems. De Yoreo has authored, co-authored, or edited over 175 publications and patents. He is a recipient of the Laudise Prize of the International Organization for Crystal Growth, the AACG Crystal Growth Award, an R&D 100 Award, and the LLNL Science and Technology Award.
