David Lynn has contributed to systems chemistry, molecular recognition, synthetic biology, and chemical evolution. He has developed chemical and physical methods for analyzing supramolecular self-assemblies, signal transduction in cellular development and pathogenesis, and designing molecular skeletons for storing and reading information for the evolution of biological order. To combat the increasing divide between graduate and undergraduate educational structures and the growing polarization in public opinion on scientific theory and the use of primary evidence, Lynn established a freshman seminar, called On Recent Discoveries by Emory Researchers (ORDER), which engages near-peer mentors and recent Emory University discoveries to expose first-semester freshmen to the diverse programs available in a research university.
