Amanda Hussey is a scientist at Microbial Machines focusing on the in-vivo delivery and testing of the lead products. She has a diverse interdisciplinary background in chemistry, biochemistry, and biology doing everything from chemical synthesis of novel probes for excitatory neuron tracking to in-vivo testing of the effect of diet on cancer progression. Her most recent work investigated the effect of the role of fatty acid oxidation under a high fat diet on colorectal tumor initiation and progression.
Amanda received a BS in Chemistry from the University of the Sciences in Philadelphia. She completed a PhD in Chemistry from the University of Massachusetts Amherst with a focus on chemical biology. Her post-doctoral training was completed at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in both the Chemistry department and at the Koch Institute for Integrative Cancer Research.
