Albert Truong is a graduate student in Biochemistry and Cell Biology at Rice University. As an undergraduate in Dr. Joff Silberg's lab, he studied the effect of insertional mutations on ferredoxin function. He is currently interested in developing strategies for controlling cellular electron flow by engineering flavodoxins into chemical-dependent switches through insertional mutation. Additionally, he has been a member of the Rice iGEM team from 2016-2019, a student-led organization that develops synthetic biology solutions to real-world problems, whose projects have been awarded gold medals and nominations for best education and public engagement.
