Event Description

Jessee Svoboda is a Ph.D. student in bioengineering. Their research focuses on genetic tool development and bacterial strain engineering for heterologous expression of natural products, primarily for drug discovery. Their favorite bacteria are cyanobacteria, despite how much easier Pseudomonas is to work with. Jessee received the 2022 Curtis and Isabella Holt Graduate Fellowship from the College of Pharmacy. They plan to graduate in June 2023 and transition to postdoctoral research.
