Christopher Shen, PhDAdjunct Faculty
Bioprocessing, Microbial Fermentation, Nanotechnology
Dr. Shen is currently Senior Process Engineer at Kite Pharma where he works on cancer immunotherapies. Prior to Kite, he worked on fermentation development and disposable technologies at Allergan for microbial biopharmaceutical production. He completed postdoctoral training at KGI under Matt Croughan, where he worked on CHO culture media supplementation and stem cell process development. He received his BS with high honors in bioengineering from UC Berkeley and his PhD in biomedical engineering from the joint program at Georgia Institute of Technology and Emory University in 2011. He completed his PhD work on multifunctional nanoparticles for diagnostics and drug delivery under Shuming Nie.
Graduates in molecular biology, bioengineering, or many other fields can potentially take advantage of many exciting and lucrative careers opportunities in biotechnology development, manufacturing, commercial operations, quality assurance, regulatory affairs, business development, licensing, and investment fund management.
