Chikdu Shivalila, PhD
Senior Scientist, Biology at Wave Life Sciences


Dr Shivalila is a Senior scientist at Wave Life Sciences. He obtained his PhD in the laboratory of Rudolf Jaenisch at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) in 2015. Chikdu joined Wave in 2016 after completing postdoctoral studies on synthetic biological mechanisms for eukaryotic cell delivery and novel methods for genome engineering at the Wyss Institute and Harvard University. His research has predominately focused on genetic engineering technologies, synthetic biology, stem cell biology, epigenetics and genetics. Chikdu has spearheaded Wave’s discovery efforts to develop stereopure oligonucleotides that support ADAR-mediated RNA editing. He earned his BS in Biological Sciences from the University of Pittsburgh, PhD in Biology from MIT, and completed his postdoctoral research at Harvard University.
