My interest lies in the development and application of technologies to accelerate the growth of the peptide therapeutics field. I currently lead a diverse team of scientists working to utilize Nimble Therapeutics’ proprietary maskless array synthesis technology for the rapid, efficient discovery and optimization of peptide therapeutics.
Two things have really impressed me at APS meetings: (1) the diverse, collaborative environment and (2) the high quality of investigator’s work. I believe that organizations like APS play a critical role in ensuring all voices are represented in the peptide field. It is this collaborative, scientifically-motivated environment that I believe will drive the emergence of new peptide therapeutics. I look forward to contributing to this mission.
FREE Membership in APS is open to graduate students, professionals, and retired professionals, with an interest in peptides or a related scientific field.
Consider joining us 'at the peptide frontier' for the next summer's American Peptide Symposium. Co-chairs, Rob Garbaccio and David Chenoweth, are planning a terrific scientific program intertwined with networking opportunities and, as always, lots of fun.
