J. Kullman, 11.04.16, Full Circle: Alyssa Henning earned a bachelor’s degree in biological engineering with a minor in biomedical engineering from Cornell University and a master’s degree in agricultural and biological engineering from Penn State University. She chose to come to ASU to pursue a doctoral degree in biological design in the Fulton Schools in large part because of the opportunity to work with faculty members whose expertise is in the emerging field of synthetic biology. At Cornell she got involved in the top collegiate synthetic biology challenge — the International Genetically Engineered Machine Competition, known as iGEM — which led her to meet synthetic biologist and Fulton Schools Assistant Professor Karmella Haynes.

Dr. Karmella Haynes will discuss the lab’s latest research at the interface of chromatin engineering and CRISPR with Science Friday host Ira Flatow this Friday, November 4th on Public Radio International (PRI). Arizona listeners can tune in to NPR station KJZZ at 12 noon to listen.
Interview: Dr. Karmella Haynes: Expressing Her Creativity Making Epigenetic Machinery and Designing Biological Devices
M. McNeely, 10.12.2015, People Behind the Science Podcast: Dr. Karmella Haynes is an Assistant Professor in the Ira A. Fulton School of Biological and Health Systems Engineering at Arizona State University. She is also a senior judge for the International Genetically Engineered Machine Competition. She received her Ph.D. in Molecular Genetics from Washington University in St. Louis. Prior to joining the faculty at ASU, Karmella was awarded a Howard Hughes Medical Institute Teaching and Research fellowship at Davidson College, followed by an NIH postdoctoral fellowship at Harvard Medical School. Karmella is with us today to tell us all about her journey through life and science.

J. Kullman, 11.10.14, ASU Now: Karmella Haynes wants to help the body fight cancer by designing proteins to stop the disease. Haynes, a synthetic biologist at Arizona State University, is leading research to explore the capability of genetically engineered proteins to reactivate tumor suppressors inside body cells to prevent the onset of cancer, or arrest its development.

N. Pierce & J. Kullman, 04.15.2013, ASU Full Circle: Arizona State University is beginning to establish its place on the map in the burgeoning field of synthetic biology. Notable strides in research are being made by faculty members and students in the School of Biological and Health Systems Engineering, one of ASU’s Ira A. Fulton Schools of Engineering. Assistant professor Karmella Haynes was recently the featured speaker on the subject of advances in synthetic biology for the Arizona Science Center’s New Frontiers in Medical Science lecture series.

Karmella Haynes was selected as The Scientist magazine’s December Scientist to Watch.
“In 2011, at the Fifth International Meeting on Synthetic Biology in Stanford, California, Karmella Haynes arrived at the designated spot to display her poster. Rather than standing idly by, however, she set the board on an easel, whipped out a paintbrush, and turned science into art.”
