Richie E. Kohman, Ph.D

I am an chemist who runs the Synthetic Biology Platform at the Wyss Insitute at Harvard University.  Along with Faculty Lead George Church, I oversee all research involving advances in nucleic acid synthesis, in situ sequencing, gene editing, gene therapy, neurotechnology, stem cell engineering, anti aging, and all aspects relating to the intersection of synthetic biology and synthetic chemistry. My experitise is in molecular engineering, neurotechnology, and genetic delivery, and my goal is to develop technology which will be transformative for healthcare and society.  Of particular interest are technoogies which can analyze or influence brain structure and function.   I was recently co-PI of an IARPA-funded project to map synaptic connectivity in large brain volumes and am currently principle investigator of an NIH funded project involving the genetic labeling of mammalian brains with billions of color for the purpose of elucidating its fundamental architecture.
