New Instructors for 2015


Three new instructors have joined the line-up for the 2015 Cold Spring Harbor Summer Course in Synthetic Biology!

John Dueber (left) is an Assistant Professor of Bioengineering at University of California, Berkeley. The Dueber lab develops strategies for improving programmable control over cells, particularly for the production of chemicals.

Mary Dunlop (center) is an Assistant Professor in the School of Engineering at the University of Vermont. The Dunlop Lab combines dynamic, single-cell experiments and computational modeling to study how microorganisms use feedback to respond to changes in their environment.

Stanley Qi (right) is an Assistant Professor of Bioengineering at Stanford University, with a joint appointment in the Department of Chemical and Systems Biology and ChEM-H. The Qi Lab is currently applying genome engineering especially the CRISPR technologies to create tools that enable new directions in synthetic biology for large scale mammalian genome and cell engineering.

We are excited to have these extremely talented professors join our growing team. Applicants for 2015 will have the exciting opportunity to work directly with these young leaders in synthetic biology, as well as returning instructors Karmella Haynes (ASU), Julius Lucks (Cornell), and Pamela Peralta-Yahya (Georgia Tech). For more information about our team of instructors, read their full bios on the 2015 Instructors page.
