This class is taught by White Labs Senior Scientist, Karen Fortmann, Ph.D. Karen received both her Masters and Doctor of Philosophy in Biochemistry from the University of California, San Diego. During her graduate studies, she worked on characterizing the functional and molecular traits of a degron in IκBα, the inhibitor of the transcription factor NFκB, in the laboratory of Dr. Alexander Hoffmann. Rather than going the traditional biotechnology route she decided to explore fermentation sciences and in July 2014, she became the first Postdoctoral Research Scientist at White Labs, Inc.
