Whitman Schofield, Ph.D.

Director II, Preclinical Biology

Dr. Schofield’s academic career focused on the molecular mechanisms that enable bacteria to propagate and thrive in the mammalian host. He completed his doctoral work in the laboratory of Christine Jacobs-Wagner, where he studied bacterial chromosome segregation by developing novel image analysis software. His post-doctoral work was done with Andrew Goodman at Yale University, where he utilized transcriptomics, metabolomics and epistasis analysis to elucidate how human gut bacteria adjust central carbon metabolism to the mammalian digestive tract.
