Allen Tseng, Ph.D.

Principal Scientist, Synthetic Biology

Wen Allen Tseng is a Principal Scientist in Synthetic Biology at Strand Therapeutics. Prior to joining Strand, he was in the Research and Development group at Solid Biosciences, a company focused on developing gene therapies for Duchenne muscular dystrophy. Before working in industry, Allen was a postdoctoral associate at the MIT Synthetic Biology Center, where he engineered mammalian cells with genetic circuits to control cellular processes such as antibody glycosylation. He obtained his B.S. in Biological Sciences from the University of Delaware and earned his Ph.D. in Experimental Pathology from Harvard University, where he studied the involvement of an innate immune danger-sensing pathway in age-related macular degeneration.
