Get to know our speakers:
Dr. Eric Abbate serves as the Director of Analytical Biochemistry on the Applications Development team. His work primarily focuses on developing and utilizing high-throughput phenotyping workflows to screen libraries generated using the Onyx platform. Eric’s academic background is in protein structure/function and worked for many years developing enzymes for industrial use at Novozymes prior to joining Inscripta
Laura Klitten has worked with scientific communication within medical genetics, non-coding RNAs, molecular biology and new technologies in a variety of industrial roles for the last 8 years. Dr. Klitten is the Scientific Liaison with Inscripta’s EMEA team. Dr. Klitten is, among other tasks, responsible for correct and timely communication between internal and external partners and act as the “voice of customer” within Inscripta to ensure outstanding support and execution of projects demonstrating the many applications of the Onyx™ Digital Genome Engineering platform. Before joining Inscripta, Dr. Klitten had different commercial roles including Global Product Manager at QIAGEN and Exiqon. Dr. Klitten earned her M.Sc. and Ph.D degrees at the University of Copenhagen, Denmark.
Dr. Tyson Shepherd has a background in biochemistry and synthetic biology, publishing on protein engineering, large DNA construct design, cell-free synthetic biology, phage biology, and nucleic acid nanotechnology. Dr. Shepherd works in a collaborative team within Inscripta and with external partners to design and execute projects demonstrating the many applications of the Onyx Digital Genome Engineering Platform. Before joining Inscripta, Dr. Shepherd was a research scientist at MIT. Dr. Shepherd earned his graduate degree at the University of Iowa and did postdoctoral research at MIT and Uppsala University.
