Karmella Haynes

Biography

Karmella Haynes' group uses synthetic, systems, and quantitative biology to engineer useful gene and protein-based biological devices and to deepen understanding of molecular cell biology. They operate biological devices primarily in human and mammalian cells. Accelerating the pace of therepeutic technologies (such as tissue regeneration and customizable protein-based drugs) via modular design is the grand challenge that shapes her team's research plans.

Haynes earned her doctorate in molecular genetics at Washington University, St. Louis. Her postdoctoral training focused on designing bacterial DNA for mathematical applications (Davidson College) and engineering synthetic proteins to control human cell fates (Harvard Medical School).
