Kyle is an expert in RNA technology & mass spectroscopic bio-analytical techniques.

At ADDReB, Kyle is currently working on the COL7A (collagen) project

Kyle is a scientist and entrepreneur. He has previously worked as a postdoctoral fellow in the laboratory of Dr. Tony Wyss-Coray in the Department of Neurology and Neurological Sciences, and also worked in conjunction with the laboratory of Dr. Carolyn Bertozzi in the Department of Chemistry and ChEM-H.

Kyle was awarded a BS in Biochemistry and a BA in Chemistry from North Carolina State University while performing research under Dr. Mitch Eddy at the NIH-National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences. He earned his PhD in biophysics in the laboratory of Dr. Josep Rizo at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center where he determined a structural model of the synaptotagmin-SNARE complex, proteins key to achieving rapid neurotransmitter release.

Bhavika Mam, PhD

Postdoctoral Researcher, Bioinformatics & Drug Development


Email » 

Bhavika is an expert in Bioinformatics & Computational Biology and a member  of the Early Career Committee at CVI, Stanford. Notably, she was awarded the prestigious Stanford PBDI grant in 2023.

Her interests lie in  improving health outcomes for diverse populations using inter-disciplinary methods driving together innovation & sustainability.

Bhavika led in silico and in vitro projects focused on therapeutic applications for Epidermolysis bullosa (EB) and played key roles in initiating the projects. Her expertise in structural bioinformatics allowed her to explore the mechanism of collagen type VII in the disease (manuscript in preparation). She successfully extracted and purified recombinant human COL7A, participating in biophysical studies using Surface Plasmon Resonance.   Bhavika played a crucial role in formulating and developing COL7A delivery and performed cytotoxicity tests on human keratinocytes for therapeutic purposes in EB (manuscript in preparation).
