Leon transitioned across disciplines from chemistry & biochemistry through bioengineering into computer science. His PhD work focused on the development of computational data analysis approaches to address immunological questions regarding the diversity of immune responses across the population and the development of therapeutic vaccines. This brought him to work for 2 years at the vaccine biotechnology company BioNTech where he was involved in the design of novel classes of RNA vaccines. With the establishment of the Center for Systems and Engineering Immunology at Yale, he was offered a new challenge to join the TsangLab at Yale to work on ground breaking research in this area.
