Mo Khalil is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Biomedical Engineering at Boston University. Mo was as an invited speaker in 2015. Vincent Noireaux is an Assistant Professor in the School of Engineering at the University of Vermont. He has contributed to the course by generously providing specialized cell-free gene expression reagents, and by giving an invited talk in 2015. Harris Wang is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Systems Biology at Columbia University. Harris was an invited speaker in 2014 and 2013.

Two of our new instructors will be participating in the CSH Synthetic Biology course for the first time. Howard Salis, an Assistant Professor in the Chemical Engineering and Biological Engineering departments at Penn State University, and Michael Smanski, an Assistant Professor of Biochemistry, Molecular Biology, and Biophysics at the University of Minnesota.

We are excited to have these extremely talented professors join our growing team. Applicants for 2016 will have the exciting opportunity to work directly with these young leaders in synthetic biology, as well as returning instructor Mary Dunlop (University of Vermont).
