Carothers, J.


University of Washington





The Carothers Research Group at the University of Washington integrates computational modeling, CRISPR-Cas network engineering and RNA aptamer biosensor design for applications in synthetic biology. The broad goal of the group is to develop genetic control systems and engineer microbes and cell-free systems to provide new sources of industrially- and medically-important chemicals and materials. James is a Dan Evans Career Development Associate Professor of Chemical Engineering, Adjunct Associate Professor of Bioengineering, and Member of the Molecular Engineering & Sciences Institute (MolES) and Center for Synthetic Biology. Previously, James was a postdoctoral fellow with Jay D. Keasling at UC Berkeley and the DOE Joint BioEnergy Institute. He was a graduate student at Harvard, where he earned a Ph.D. with Jack W. Szostak, and has a B.S. in Molecular Biophysics and Biochemistry from Yale. He has received the University of Washington Presidential Innovation Award and the Alfred P. Sloan Research Fellowship.
