Dr. Albert Keung is an Associate Professor of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering at North Carolina State University. His group engineers cellular and molecular platforms to understand how information is stored and accessed in biological systems. Their work includes engineering human stem cell models of neuroepigenetic disorders, synthetic biology platforms to study and harness the biochemical and dynamic diversity of eukaryotic gene regulation, and application of molecular biology to engineer scalable and extreme density DNA-based information storage systems. His group’s work has been recognized by the NIH Avenir Award, ACS Synthetic Biology Young Innovator, CURE Angelman Sydrome Innovation in Investigation, the NSF CAREER, Goodnight Early Career Innovator, and Simons Pivot Fellow.
