Zoe MoyerEducation:

Wellesley College, B.A. in Biological Chemistry and B.A. in French Cultural Studies with a concentration in Africana Studies (2015)
Hometown: Portola Valley, CA
PhD Advisor: None chosen yet

Research Interests:

Zoe is pursuing a career in translational biomedical research and medicine with the goal to enhance quality of life, rather than to merely extend it. She is fascinated by the mechanisms underlying the human microbiome and aspires to advance personalized medicine through targeted therapeutics to our microbial companions. She values an interdisciplinary approach to scientific study; her previous research included synthetic particle systems for controlled-release vaccine and drug delivery, as well as therapeutics for diabetes, obesity, and cancer. Her bachelor's degree is certified with distinction by the American Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology (ASBMB).

Personal Bio:

Zoe grew up in the San Francisco bay area, CA, and then crossed country to Boston, MA, where she double majored at Wellesley College and researched synthetic particle delivery systems in Dr. Robert S. Langer's laboratory at MIT. After graduation, she lived in Geneva, Switzerland, for an internship under the Assistant Director General at the World Health Organization, and then moved back to Silicon Valley to work at two biotechnology startups. In her free time, she likes to rock climb, culture yogurt, tutor, and backpack around the country and world.
