Jed C. Macosko
DIRECTOR, LOOKING GLASS LEARNING & DIRECTOR OF EDUCATIONAL INITIATIVES, LINEAGE MEDIA AND SOLUTIONS
Jed C. Macosko is an associate professor of biophysics at Wake Forest University. He graduated from MIT with the Merck award for outstanding scholarship and earned a Ph.D. in biophysical chemistry at the University of California, Berkeley in 1999 for his work on the molecular machinery of influenza, HIV and nerve cells. From 2000 to 2002 his research on molecular machines continued as an NIH postdoctoral fellow in the laboratory of Carlos J. Bustamante and then in 2003 and 2004 as an adjunct assistant professor working with David J. Keller at the University of New Mexico. Since 2004 the Macosko lab at Wake Forest has used in vivo and in vitro microscopy to study how molecular machines move cargo from one part of a cell to another. He is part of a team that has developed a novel drug discovery platform based on combinatorial libraries of nucleic acid encoded chemicals and that has quantified physical properties of cancer cells. His studies on molecular machines, nucleic acids, and cell mechanics have resulted in over 30 technical papers, book chapters and submitted patents, which have been cited over 2,000 times.
