Dr. Quake is the Lee Otterson Professor of Bioengineering, Professor of Applied Physics and the Professor of Physics (by courtesy) at Stanford University and the Co-President of the Chan Zuckerberg Biohub. His group's interests lie at the nexus of physics, biology, and biotechnology. His research is concerned with developing new approaches to biological measurement and applying these approaches to problems of both fundamental and medical interest. Areas of interest include genomic diagnostics, systems biology, microbial ecology, and single cell genomics.

The KNI Distinguished Seminar Series is a new monthly series hosted by The Kavli Nanoscience Institute where eminent scientists and thinkers with strong yet varied backgrounds in nanoscience and nanotechnology share their expertise with the Caltech community. Seminars consist of a one-hour presentation, followed by a Q&A and light reception. The scopes of presentations may range from: recent outstanding scientific highlights/technological advancements, to innovative early-stage research developments, to broader cross-disciplinary topics that are relevant to nanoscience. We will record each seminar and make them available to the public via the KNI's YouTube page.
