Hao Shen


In 2019, Hao became the first student to graduate from our program. As a graduate student in the Baker lab, Hao designed protein-based building blocks that can self-assemble into protein filaments. His work was published in the journal Science and will potentially allow researchers to create entirely new materials not found in nature. He continues to study the emerging field of designed, self-assembling materials in the Baker lab as a postdoc.
