Stanford University

Dr. Elizabeth Sattely, an Assistant Professor of Chemical Engineering at Stanford, began her appointment in January 2011 after completing a Damon Runyon Postdoctoral Fellowship at Harvard Medical School in the laboratory of Christopher T. Walsh. Dr. Sattely’s postdoctoral research focused on elucidating microbial pathways for making complex natural products. She earned her PhD in synthetic chemistry in 2007 from Boston College with Amir H. Hoveyda, where she developed new methods for small molecule synthesis using molybdenum-catalyzed olefin metathesis. The Sattely lab focuses on the discovery and engineering of plant metabolic pathways. Dr. Sattely is a fellow of Stanford’s ChEM-H Institute and is supported by a NIH New Innovator Award (2013) and a DOE Early Career Award (2015).
