Justin is a 4th year PhD Student in the Molecular Biology Institute researching in the laboratory of Dr. Todd Yeates. His research work is focused on applying synthetic biology principles and computational methods to design therapeutic proteins and therapeutic delivery vectors. As an undergraduate student at UCLA, Justin studied Microbiology, Immunology & Molecular Genetics. Now at TDG, he works primarily with biologics, where he draws from his background in molecular and structural biology to better understand details of university-generated inventions. As a Business Development Fellow, he has developed skills in identifying the critical value of inventions as well as how to market these inventions for licensing. He is anticipating to graduate in 2022, after which, he is especially interested in pursuing a career in intellectual property law.
