  • Jonathan Trent, Ph.D.

    Dr. Trent currently works at NASA Ames Research Center where he leads a multidisciplinary team testing the feasibility of a system he invented for treating municipal wastewater and producing carbon-neutral biofuels without competing with agriculture for land, fertilizer, or freshwater. The system, called OMEGA (Offshore Membrane Enclosures for Growing Algae), cultivates oil-producing microalgae on municipal wastewater in plastic enclosures floating in seawater.
    Dr. Trent's previous research in astrobiology and nanotechnology focused on "extremophiles," organisms adapted to live in the most extreme environments on earth. This research focused primarily on molecular adaptations of microbes living in near-boiling sulfuric acid. In addition to research on the physiological structure and function of heat shock proteins, he developed applications for extremophile proteins in nanotechnology, i.e., how these proteins could be used to construct robust, self-assembling, genetically versatile "tools" for nanotechnology. One project involved building robust "scaffolds" to enhance the enzymatic degradation of cellulose to sugar for making biofuels.
    After receiving his Ph.D. in Biological Oceanography at Scripps Institution of Oceanography, Trent spent six years in Europe at the Max Planck Institute for Biochemistry in Germany, the University of Copenhagen in Denmark, and the University of Paris at Orsay in France. He returned to the USA to work at the Boyer Center for Molecular Medicine at Yale Medical School before establishing a biotechnology group at Argonne National Laboratory. In 1998 he moved to NASA Ames Research Center to be part of NASA's Astrobiology program and established the Protein Nanotechnology Group. In addition to working at NASA, he is an Adjunct Professor in the Dept. of Biomolecular Engineering at UC Santa Cruz and a Fellow of the California Academy of Sciences. In 2006, Dr. Trent received the Nano50 award for innovation in nanotechnology. His work on biofuels was initially supported by Google.com and is currently supported by the California Energy Commission and NASA ARMD.
  • Conrad C. Lautenbacher, Ph.D.

    Retired U.S. Navy Vice Admiral Lautenbacher served as Undersecretary of Commerce for Oceans and Atmosphere and eighth administrator of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, (NOAA) from 2001 - 2008. He holds an M.S. and Ph.D. from Harvard University in applied mathematics. As the NOAA administrator, Lautenbacher spearheaded the Earth Observation Summit, which hosted ministerial-level representation from several dozen nations in Washington D.C. Through subsequent international summits and working groups, he worked to encourage world scientific and policy leaders to work toward a common goal of building a sustained Global Earth Observation System of Systems (GEOSS) that would collect and disseminate data, information and models to stakeholders and decision makers for the benefit of all nations individually and the world community collectively. The effort culminated in an agreement for a 10-year implementation plan for GEOSS reached by the 55 member countries of the Group on Earth Observations at the Third Observation Summit held in Brussels 2005. As Assistant for Strategy with the Chief of Naval Operations and Program Planning Branch Head in the Navy Program Planning Directorate, he continued to hone his analytic skills resulting in designation as a specialist both in Operations Analysis and Financial Management. During his tour of duty, he served as Deputy Chief of Naval Operations in charge of Navy programs and a budget of $100b.
