Leadership

The Brivanlou Laboratory at Rockefeller University, in partnership with Nobel prize-winner Dr. Charles Rice and Dr. Eric Siggia, has laid the groundwork for Rumi Scientific’s transformative technology. 

The lab was among the first groups to work directly with human embryonic stem cells (hESCs,) and derived several hESC lines that have led to several discoveries under the auspices of the National Institutes of Health, and in collaboration with Dr. Rice, the development of highly quantitative and standardized models for viral infectious diseases.

The Rumi Viro Team

Our senior leadership is comprised of practicing scientists and strategists, and whether they are working collaboratively or independently, they always do so in pursuit of therapeutic success.
