Chris Bahl is a computational protein designer, biochemist and structural biologist. He earned his PhD in biochemistry from the Geisel School of Medicine at Dartmouth, where he studied host-pathogen interactions. During his postdoctoral studies with David Baker at the University of Washington’s Institute for Protein Design, Chris developed a novel method to design structured peptides de novo. At the Institute for Protein Innovation, Chris’ group combines computational de novo design with high-throughput laboratory automation to create new protein technologies and accelerate the development of novel therapeutics. Chris is also a TED Fellow, and he serves on the Scientific Advisory Board of multiple companies.
