About the Presenters
Louise obtained an MSc in biochemistry at the Technical University Munich before joining Dr. Jason Chin’s lab as a Ph.D. student in 2017. Here she worked on developing and applying techniques for large-scale genome engineering with the focus on studying the plasticity of the genetic code and engineering it to progress genetic code expansion.
Daniel received a BSc in biotechnology at University College London in 2016. He then joined the laboratory of Dr. Jason Chin at the MRC Laboratory of Molecular Biology in Cambridge, where he is a Ph.D. candidate focused on developing technologies for genetic code expansion and prokaryotic genome engineering.
Wes earned his Ph.D. in chemical biology at Yale University before starting a postdoc in synthetic biology with Dr. Jason Chin at the MRC-LMB in 2017. His current research involves developing genome engineering techniques to test the flexibility of the genetic code as well as its potential for further expansion.
