Minimal membrane systems for deciphering the role of lipidome complexity
James Saenz is a group leader at the B CUBE Center for Molecular Bioengineering at the TU Dresden. His career has taken several turns, which have been motivated by a passion for understanding how life works and how the co-evolution of life and Earth has led to modern cells. James pursued his PhD at MIT and the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution in the field of chemical oceanography where he was first introduced to the application of lipids as molecular fossils to reconstruct the history of life. James moved to Dresden for his postdoc in the lab of Professor Kai Simons at the MPI-CBG to explore what preceded sterols in the evolution of membrane organization. Currently James’ lab is focused on how life employs the emergent properties of lipids to build responsive organizational interfaces between cells and their environment.
