Richie E. Kohman, Ph.D

I am an applied scientist who runs the Synthetic Biology research division at the Wyss Insitute at Harvard University.  My experitise is in molecular engineering, neurotechnology, and genetic engineering, and my goal is to develop technology which will be transformative for medicine and society.  Of particular interest are methods to alter or edit brain activity and genes.

This is my personal website which lists my technical background and scientific publications.   Additional profiles can be found at Google Scholar, LinkedIn, and ResearchGate as well as my personal Twitter account.  Currently, I am a Senior Staff Scientist and Lead of the Synthetic Biology Platorm at the Wyss Institute for Biologically Inspired Engineering at Harvard University.  Along with Faculty Lead George Church, I oversee all research conducted by the Synthetic Biology Platform including advances in nucleic acid synthesis, in situ sequencing, gene editing, genome recoding, gene therapy, neurotechnology, stem cell engineering, anti aging, and all aspects relating to the intersection of synthetic biology and synthetic chemistry.  I was recently co-PI of an IARPA-funded project to map synaptic connectivity in large brain volumes.
