Arturo Casini, Ph.D.

Arturo Casini is a research scientist I in the MIT–Broad Foundry, a collaborative venture between the Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard and the Synthetic Biology Center at MIT. He works under the direction of Ben Gordon to develop next-generation genetic design tools for synthetic biology.

Prior to joining the Broad Institute in 2016, Casini was a research associate at Imperial College London, a post he undertook during his doctoral studies at Imperial.

In addition to his Ph.D. in synthetic biology, Casini also holds a master’s degree in systems and synthetic biology from Imperial College London, as well as a bachelor’s degree in biology from Università degli Studi di Firenze.
