Jia Niu

We are very pleased to announce that Dr. Jia Niu will be joining the faculty this summer.  He earned his doctorate at Harvard University and is currently a postdoctoral fellow at the University of California, Santa Barbara.  Dr. Niu's research will focus on establishing new capabilities to engineer the chemical landscape of the living cell surface towards novel functions.  He will be using interdisciplinary measures which combine organic synthesis, polymer chemistry, bioconjugation, evolution, and bioengineering approaches.
