Alumni Huong Le is the 2016 winner of the Martin Sinacore Outstanding Young Investigator Award. She joined the Process Development group at Amgen in 2012 after completion of a Chemical Engineering Ph.D. at the University of Minnesota. In her Ph.D. work she introduced advanced data mining to unveil hidden process characteristics from biomanufacturing data. Her work on systems analysis of transcriptome data helped advance transcriptomic applications in biopharmaceutical science. With her insight on transcriptomics she demonstrated a novel concept of dynamic cell engineering using endogenous promoters with various dynamics of expression profiles.
