Fatinah Albeez is a research associate in the Sabeti Lab. In the lab, she is dedicated to working with her colleagues to advance research in the field of CRISPR/Cas13 diagnostic technologies. With a strong passion for bioengineering, biotechnology development, and entrepreneurship, Fatinah strives to merge these interests in a career in medicine. Her goal is to contribute to transformative innovation in healthcare, from the bedside to the clinic and beyond.
Fatinah graduated from Princeton University in May of 2023 with a B.S.E in Chemical & Biological Engineering and certificates (minors) in Engineering Biology and Global Health & Health Policy. During her time at Princeton, Fatinah conducted her senior thesis under the guidance of Dr. Cameron Myhrvold in the Department of Molecular Biology and Dr. Antoine Kahn in the Department of Electrical & Computer Engineering. Her research focused on optimizing and further multiplexing CRISPR/Cas13 viral diagnostics by leveraging quantum dots’ unique optoelectronics, all within a bead-based approach.
Outside of the lab, Fatinah enjoys discovering new coffee shops, traveling, and reading. Originally from Troy, Michigan, Fatinah grew up surrounded by the great lakes and breathtaking landscapes, which have fostered her love for hiking and skiing.
She looks forward to starting her career in the lab, getting to know her new team, and exploring the Boston/Cambridge area!
