Reshma Shetty graduated from MIT with a PhD in Biological Engineering in 2008. She has expertise in the design and construction of synthetic repressors and regulatable promoters in E. coli using zinc fingers and leucine zippers. She also has published on a general approach for building custom cloning vectors from BioBrick genetic parts. Reshma Shetty has been active in the field for several years and co-organized SB1.0, the first international conference in synthetic biology in 2004. She also spearheaded the use of OpenWetWare, a wiki for life science researchers, as an educational tool when she helped teach an MIT undergraduate laboratory course in synthetic biology in 2006. The course demonstrated how wiki's can support university education and has served as a model for university courses from institutions across the country.
