Professional Bio: Christopher Domalewski graduated from Johns Hopkins University in 2020 with a B.S. in Chemistry and Biomolecular Engineering and minors in Entrepreneurship and Management. After starting his Bachelor’s of Science at Johns Hopkins University in 2016, Christopher joined Honggang Cui’s Lab at the Institute for Nanobiotechnology (INBT), a group he would be a part of for over 3 years as a research assistant, with a focus on the study of supramolecular materials such as peptides for the formation of supramolecular structures and delivery devices for treatment of diseases such as brain cancers and asthma and COPD. Currently, he is advised by Dr. Millicent O. Sullivan in the Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering. His graduate research is focused on utilizing multi responsive, naturally derived peptides such as elastin and collagen for the delivery and formation of membranous systems in the construction of synthetic cells.
Fun Bio: Besides the lab work, Chris enjoys spending time cooking French omelettes, scuba diving, producing and mixing music, as well as running endurance races while fundraising for Fred’s Team at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center
