Member of the Schreiber Lab, focused on chemistry, therapeutics, and crisp prose

Chris is currently a member of Stuart Schreiber’s laboratory at the Broad Institute, which uses organic chemistry and chemical biology to address challenges in human biology and disease. Hoping to reduce the world’s supply of unintelligible manuscripts and head-scratching posters, Chris has made effective communication a cornerstone of his scientific career. His decision to join the BRCL was motivated by his experiences as a peer tutor and a teaching assistant in both the lab and the lecture hall. He firmly believes that talking about science in plain, simple language is the easiest way to get more people – scientists and non-scientists alike – excited about your work. Outside of the lab, Chris can be found running alongside the Charles River, contributing to the Harvard “Science in the News” blog, or cheering for the New England Patriots.
