I work in the Wilmer Eye Institute at the JHU School of Medicine. I learned about OpenWetWare from the 24C3 Endy lecture, and I've joined because I am interested in contributing to the BBF Technical Standards.

Research Interests

  1. Synthetic Biology
    1. Standards - Establishing standards for biological parts to ensure interoperability and allow for construction of complex systems
    2. Biocircuits - Implementing wetware abstraction layers to allow creation of devices for cellular computation and communications
    3. Epigenetics - Manipulating chromatin structures with histone and DNA modifications as a form of biological software programming
    4. Delivery Systems - Making viruses or other vectors for targeted delivery of DNA parts into an established host genome
  2. Bioengineering
    1. Immunology - Defining the theoretical framework and designing components for an artificial immune system
    2. Drug Discovery - Designing cell reporter systems to detect biomolecule interactions and perturbations in signal transduction
    3. Astrobiology - Engineering energy pathways and lifeforms sustainable in extreme environments
    4. Biocomputing - Integrating logic biocircuits on a very large scale in single cell and multicellular systems
  3. Biosecurity and Biosafety
    1. Policy - Balancing the needs of an open hacker community with access restrictions
    2. Testing and Certification - Establishing an "Underwriters Laboratories" for developing standards and test procedures for biosafety
    3. Countermeasures - Designing fail-safe mechanisms to mitigate potential synthetic biology abuses
