Assistant Professor and Nancy and Peter Meinig Family Investigator in the Life Sciences

Christopher Alabi

Olin Hall, Room 356

Educational Background

  • Postdoc, Massachusetts Institute of Technology
  • PhD, Caltech
  • BS and BSE, NYU and Stevens Institute of Technology



Research in the Alabi lab seeks to understand how the composition and sequence of a macromolecular chain affects its chemical and biological properties with an eye towards engineering effective and affordable biomolecular therapeutics. As a group, we are interested in the assembly of new sequence-controlled macromolecules that can be used to quantitate intracellular processes, develop efficient drug delivery bioconjugates and design new classes of potent antimicrobial agents.

Graduate Fields

  • Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering
  • Chemistry and Chemical Biology


  • Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering
