2023 Fellow

Kira Podolsky

PhD Institution
University of California, San Diego

Kira’s PhD focused on the synthesis and characterization of organelles and other cellular structures using chemical components to understand the point at which chemistry becomes biology. As a Fellow, Kira will pivot from chemical biology to enzymology to explore the potential for the production of enzymes in cells with a goal of using that understanding to create new therapies for human diseases.
