Protein Engineering History

My career in the pharmaceutical and biotechnology industries saw rapid advances in the development of new technologies for protein engineering, structural biology, computational chemistry, and drug discovery. I was able to participate in this development through a succession of positions in different companies and environments. My trajectory has been determined by a combination of emergent opportunities and external events. Some disruptive events were the result of business decisions that had little to do with the scientific endeavor. Others were the result of scientific expectations that initially looked feasible, but ultimately did not work out as anticipated.

Throughout my career, beginning with my undergraduate work at Yale with Fred Richards, I have been interested in what has become defined a Protein Engineering

I took leave from Yale Univeristy after my Sophomore Year to serve a shipboard scientist aboard the Robert Conrad, a research vessel operated by the (then) Lamont Geological Observatory of Columbia University.
As a graduate student at UCSD, I lead a project to build a steam powered car for the CalTech-MIT transcontinental Clean Air Car Race
