Emma Chory

Assistant Professor
Duke University

Emma Chory is an incoming Assistant Professor of Biomedical Engineering at Duke University (Fall 2023).  She received her B.S. degree in Chemical Engineering from Northeastern University and her doctorate in Chemical Engineering from Stanford University, studying chromatin biology and epigenetic regulation. As a postdoctoral fellow at MIT, she developed novel systems to enable the high-throughput, systematic, and quantitative evolution of therapeutic proteins and cellular populations using automation and directed evolution. She has won multiple fellowships and awards including the NIH F31, F32, and was the SLAS Innovation Award Winner. Her team at Duke leverages directed evolution, high-throughput robotics, and chromatin biology to engineer novel precision biologics and build mechanistic models that will better inform our ability to understand and tackle human disease. For more information, visit www.chorylab.com.
