Consistently Pursuing Maximum Therapeutic Potential
Throughout my research career I have had the privilege to work on extremely varied projects with amazing scientists including two Nobel Laureates. The unifying theme of these projects has been therapeutic potential. From epigenetics, to aptamers, and bacterial engineering, I seek out projects that promise to relieve suffering, and benefit the most patients.
I am currently the Lead Scientist for the Lead Program at Synlogic Therapeutics. At Synlogic we are merging the advancements made in the fields of synthetic biology and host/microbiome interactions to engineer bacteria with specific pharmacological functions to treat metabolic disease from within the human gut. Previously, I was a postdoctoral fellow in the Silver Lab split between the Harvard Medical School and the Wyss Institute for Biologically Inspired Engineering. I have included examples to some of my published research below. .
