Bradley L. Pentelute
Bradley L. Pentelute is an Associate Professor of Chemistry at Massachusetts Institute of Technology. He is also an Associate Member, Broad Institute of Harvard and MIT, an Extramural Member of the MIT Koch Cancer Institute, and Member, Center for Environmental Health Sciences MIT. He received his undergraduate degree in Psychology and Chemistry from the University of Southern California, and his M.S and Ph.D. in Organic Chemistry from the University of Chicago with Prof. Steve Kent. He was a postdoctoral fellow in the laboratory of Dr. R. John Collier at Harvard Medical School, Microbiology.
Professor Pentelute’s research program lies at the intersection of chemistry and biology. The main research directions in his lab entail building fast flow technologies for the rapid production of proteins and cell penetrating biopolymers while employing computational design, combinatorial peptide library affinity selection methods, and high-throughput mass sequencing to identify functional peptide-based binders to protein targets.
