Curt Fischer

    I’m a trained chemical engineer with fifteen years of experience in industrial biotechnology that spans both industry and academia.  My Ph.D. from MIT focused on metabolic engineering.  In 2011, I joined Ginkgo Bioworks as their 2nd full-time hire, and until 2014 worked on a variety of publicly and privately funded projects in synthetic biology, metabolic engineering, enzymology and metabolomics.  I developed Ginkgo’s first technoeconomic models for its fermentation processes, and led our interactions with toll fermentation providers.
