Jake Wintermute

Research Fellow, CRI (Paris, France)

I come from the United States, where I did my thesis work in Pam Silver’s lab at Harvard (Department of Systems Biology) with a focus on microbial communities and metabolic engineering. Before that, I studied biology and computer science as an undergraduate at New York University. In my spare time, I enjoy geeking out about science and posting memes about transgenes (@synbio1).

NowI’m a long-term fellow research fellow at the CRI in Paris, using systems and synthetic biology to discover new drugs against tuberculosis and other human pathogens. I teach Introduction to Synthetic Biology and I also run a free online version of that course at SyntheticBiology1.com.
