Yevgeny Brudno received Bachelor's degrees in Chemistry and Biophysics from the University of Pennsylvania in 2004 and a Ph.D. in Chemical Biology from Harvard University in 2010. As an NSF graduate student in the laboratory of David Liu, Yevgeny developed methods for the evolution of unnatural polymers through non-enzymatic translation of nucleic-acid code into unnatural polymers followed by functional selection. Yevgeny's current research interests include understanding and manipulating perivascular cell-endothelial cell interactions during angiogenesis to promote wound healing and harnessing DNA nanotechnology and bioorthogonal chemistry to develop refillable drug delivery devices.

When not at the bench, Yevgeny enjoys backpacking, reading and blowing glass.
