What made you want to join BAKX?
The approach BAKX is taking is intriguing and exciting. Being able to influence the apoptosis pathway really caught my eye since that can be applied to treat a wide variety of cancers and diseases. The team brings years of experience in this area as well as a drive to make a difference. This showed me how much of an impact this target can have on patients’ lives. Also, the size of the team allows us to be closely-knit, collaborative, and gives us the ability to share valuable insights which helps us all scientifically grow.
What do you bring to the BAKX team?
I bring to BAKX strong protein expression and purification skills as I have successfully purified a wide variety of proteins using different expression systems and tags. I also bring biochemical assay development skills including designing, running, and analyzing assays to observe how compounds interact with our target.
