Lauren Enriquez is a Staff Research Associate on the Technology Team at the LGR. At the LGR, Lauren is developing automated protocols for functional genomics screening platforms. Lauren earned her Master of Engineering in Bioengineering with an emphasis in Synthetic Biology and Bioinformatics from UC Berkeley. At Berkeley, Lauren served as the Team Leader for a capstone project focused on developing chemoinformatic software that predicts enzymatic reaction specificity. Lauren is excited for the genomics data that the LGR will generate in its drug targeting studies and hopes to contribute to the optimization of LGR’s bioinformatics pipelines.
