Dr. Natalie Kuldell leads BioBuilder, a nonprofit organization helps students experience the process of science and engineering. The BioBuilder curriculum takes cutting-edge research projects in synthetic biology and transforms them into teachable modules which are now taught in almost every US state and around the world. A BioBuilder textbook was published by O’Reilly Media. Last year, BioBuilder opened a community lab in Kendall Square’s LabCentral. Dr. Kuldell studied Chemistry as an undergraduate at Cornell, completed her doctoral and post-doctoral work at Harvard Medical School, and taught at Wellesley College before joining the Department of Biological Engineering faculty at MIT in 2003.
