Travis Nemkov, Professional Research Assistant

Travis earned two B.Sc. degrees from the University of Colorado Boulder in Biology and Biochemistry with a minor in Chemistry.  His experience is primarily with recombinant protein production and purification.  During his time in Boulder, Travis spent a summer working as an intern at Roche Colorado Corporation and was introduced to peptide chemistry.  From there, he moved into the lab of Dr. Michael Stowell at CU Boulder where he assisted in developing a novel recombinant peptide production scheme.  Dr. Stowell ultimately co-founded AmideBio based on this process and Travis spent nearly four years with the startup prior to joining the Proteomics Facility.
