Dr. Karla-Luise Herpoldt (Germany 2006, Staph ‘08+, Presenter ‘14+) will present on Molecular Engineering – building new molecules for new challenges (and how you can help cure COVID-19). Karla-Luise is a Senior Research Fellow at the Institute of Protein Design at the University of Washington. Here she designs and builds proteins which don’t exist in nature and uses them to tackle problems in chemotherapy delivery and to build vaccines to prevent the world’s most vulnerable children from dying from something as simple as diarrhea. She has a Master’s in Physics from the University of Oxford and a PhD in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology from Imperial College London. Karla is a keen educator and science communicator who has lectured internationally. She is particularly passionate about encouraging young women in science, both through mentorship and policy work on an international level.
