The Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory - PhD
Jessica Dymond is a synthetic biologist at the Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory who engineers genes and genomes to develop new biological capabilities. Jessica received her PhD from Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine where she worked on the Synthetic Yeast Genome Project in Jef Boeke’s laboratory. Following a post-doctoral fellowship at the USDA, Jessica joined APL for a brief time as a post-doctoral researcher and joined the permanent research staff shortly after. Additional interests include genome engineering, integrated approaches for biocontainment of genetically modified organisms, emerging technologies, and democratization of science.
