Shay Scott, Application Scientist
Name: Shay Scott
Job Title: Application Scientist
Get in touch: Hello@lhasalimited.org
My name is Shay and I joined the Application Science team at Lhasa Limited in 2021. I received my BS in Biochemistry at University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign and am currently a PhD candidate in Biochemistry and Chemistry at George Mason University, working on the identification of potentially therapeutic antimicrobial peptides using a discovery/proteomic mass spectrometry pipeline.
As an Application Scientist, I support the efforts of scientists and organizations by providing training, technical assistance, and by addressing new opportunities for our software development to better suit member needs for informed decision-making on chemical safety. Providing an avenue for better in silico predictions to offset the need for data collected in vivo is something I am happy to support and makes me excited to be part of the Lhasa team.
In my spare time, I like trying new adventures (my most recent is hang gliding), doing escape rooms, and beating my sister at scrabble.
