Welcome back Dr. Kevin Yehl!

The Emory University Student Chapter of the biophysical society hosted it’s first invited Alumni Seminar in celebration of Biophysics Week. Dr. Kevin Yehl (PhD in Chemistry, 2015, Emory University) returned to his alma mater to discuss his scientific journey-from his early training in Biophysics at Emory, involving DNAzyme-Gold nanoparticle conjugates, leading up to his current work at MIT that is based on engineering bacteriophage structure-function relationships. Dozens of people from Emory’s research community attended this seminar to learn about molecular biophysics and celebrate Biophysics Week. Students also got the chance to meet with the speaker informally and discuss the various prospects and challenges facing early career academics in the field of biophysics.
