Kierra Franklin

I am currently a 2nd year graduate student in the Haynes Lab at Emory University! My passion lies in using synthetic biology and biotechnology to engineer new treatment solutions for disease. After finishing my Bachelor’s of Science in Chemical Engineering from Stanford University, I continued honing my skills in protein biochemistry, cell engineering and molecular biology through working on life-science applications in the biotechnology industry. My work at Codexis empowered my decision to continue my training at the graduate level where I am excited to study biomedical engineering!
