Member Monday: Meet Ezdean Alkurdi!

Lab picture.jpg

Ezdean, also known as Deno, is currently working with different methods of homologous recombination to edit the genome of E. coli. He is also transitioning into computational work.

He has a passion for genetic engineering partially because he gets to feel like he is building his own Frankenstein but instead of a zombie he can make cute Bacteria that glow.

Outside of lab, he loves hiking, biking, running, swimming and lifting! He also loves videogaming (League of Legends, Overwatch, Fortnite, PUBG, and Counter-Strike Global Offense).

His plans for the future are still largely undecided, but he is looking into MBA programs and is open to working in Consulting or banking for a couple of years. He eventually want to work for a Venture Capital firm (specialize in healthcare or technology).
