Distinguished Young Scholars Seminar: Jessica Stark

"Engineering (Glyco)immunology" Dr. Jessica Stark is currently an American Cancer Society Postdoctoral Fellow with Prof. Carolyn Bertozzi at Stanford University. Her postdoctoral work focuses on identifying and targeting glycoimmune checkpoints for cancer immunotherapy. As an NSF Graduate Research Fellow with Prof. Michael Jewett at Northwestern University, Jessica developed new, portable technologies for glycoprotein therapeutic and vaccine biomanufacturing. Previously, she received her B.S. in Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering from Cornell University, supported by an Irwin and Joan Jacobs Engineering Scholarship. Jessica’s work has been recognized with multiple awards and honors, including an NIH/NCI Postdoctoral Fellowship, a Hanna H. Gray Fellow Finalist Award, a Clare Boothe Luce Graduate Fellowship, an NIH Biotechnology Training Program Fellowship, induction to the Sigma Xi Scientific Research Honor Society, and the Northwestern Chemical Engineering Department’s Distinguished Graduate Researcher Aw… Event interval: Campus location: Physics / Astronomy Auditorium (PAA). Campus room: 118. Event Types: Academics. Lectures/Seminars. Monday, August 8, 2022, 4:00 PM – 5:00 PM. For more info visit depts.washington.edu.

Distinguished Young Scholars Seminar: Sara Molinari

"A de novo matrix for macroscopic living materials from bacteria"Dr. Sara Molinari started her studies in Italy with a Bachelor in Pharmaceutical Biotechnology at University of Perugia and a Master in Bioinformatics at University of Milano-Bicocca. She joined the System, Synthetic and Physical Biology PhD program at Rice University and graduated from Matthew Bennett’s Lab. Her PhD was largely funded by the DARPA ELM program that organized pioneer research on engineered living materials. She graduated with a thesis on engineering differentiation in bacterial cells to enable the creation of multicellular systems from prokaryotic hosts. Now she is a postdoctoral researcher in Caroline Ajo-Franklin’s lab, where she successfully created the first example macroscopic de novo engineered living material that grows from genetically modified bacteria.
