Chris Bailey-Kellogg, PhDProfessor, Computer Science at Dartmouth University
Chris Bailey-Kellogg is Professor of Computer Science at Dartmouth. His lab develops and applies computational methods for experiment optimization and analysis in studies of protein sequence-structure-function relationships. He is currently pursuing computationally-driven development of both protein therapeutics, redesigning non-human proteins so as to render them acceptable to the immune system, as well as vaccines, modeling and predicting immune responses to infection and vaccination. Chris earned a BS/MS with Sandy Pentland at MIT and a PhD with Feng Zhao at Ohio State and Xerox PARC, conducted postdoctoral research with Bruce Donald at Dartmouth, and started his faculty career at Purdue. His work has been recognized with an NSF Career award and an Alfred P. Sloan Foundation fellowship. In addition to his academic position at Dartmouth, Chris is co-founder and CTO of Stealth Biologics, LLC, which works with partners in the biopharmaceutical industry to engineer immunotolerant protein therapeutics.
