Peter Woolf, PhD
Dr. Woolf's research focuses on bioinformatics and information theory. He has worked in both academic and industrial settings on topics ranging from systems biology, computer science, synthetic biology, control theory, automation, and energy efficiency. He obtained his PhD in chemical engineering from the University of Michigan, and did his postdoctoral work in developmental biology and bioengineering at Harvard University and MIT respectively. Currently, Dr. Woolf is leading a number of startup companies focused on bioinformatics and energy efficient design.
Relating to Origami Assays in particular, Dr. Woolf has published a number of articles about multiplex screening for pharmaceutical drug discovery and informatic screening:
