Hooman Hefzi | Systems Biochemistry and Cell Engineering

Hooman Hefzi, Systems Biochemistry and Cell Engineering, U.C.S.D.

Hooman is a 6th year Ph.D. candidate in the Systems Biochemistry and Cell Engineering lab of Dr. Nathan Lewis at UC San Diego. His research focuses on integrating multiomic datasets to understand Chinese hamster ovary (CHO) cell behavior for applications in cell line engineering and optimal bioprocess design. In the course of his studies he has led an effort to construct a consensus genome-scale model of metabolism in CHO cells and identified an engineering strategy to completely eliminate lactate production in this cell line.
