Hooman Hefzi
Senior Scientist at Biogen


Hooman is leading the omics initiative at Biogen, an effort to leverage multiomics to build deep understanding of cells and use it to guide rational, efficient cell line engineering and/or process development. He was previously a postdoctoral researcher in the Systems Biochemistry and Cell Engineering lab of Dr. Nathan Lewis at UC San Diego where his research resulted in the construction of the consensus genome-scale metabolic model of CHO cells and the identification of a genetic engineering strategy to eliminate lactate production in CHO and HEK cells.
