Scott Coyle

Assistant Professor
University of Wisconsin-Madison

Scott Coyle earned his Bachelor’s degree in Biochemistry from the University of California, Berkeley. He went on to obtain his Ph.D in Biochemistry at UCSF in Wendell Lim's group, and commercialized technologies he developed as a student as a Founding Scientist at the immunotherapy startup CellDesignLabs. As a postdoc in Manu Prakash's lab at Stanford University, he defined how dynamic cell behaviors could arise from patterns of oscillating control signals. In his own group, Scott is using synthetic biology to develop biochemical programming interfaces that expand our ability to understand and engineer dynamic cell biology. A major focus of his group is to develop synthetic circuits that self-organize molecules in space and time within the cell, with novel applications for imaging, systems biology, and cell-engineering.
