Nick Goeden co-founded Capsida Biotherapeutics in March 2019 and serves as Vice President of Technology.

Prior to co-founding Capsida Biotherapeutics, Nick led a team developing the novel adeno-associated virus (AAV) engineering technology underlying Capsida’s biologically driven gene therapy platform. During his tenure as a postdoctoral fellow in Viviana Gradinaru’s lab at Caltech, he developed high-throughput methods for screening combinatorial libraries to explore the AAV fitness landscape and engineered novel AAVs with high efficiency and specificity for the rodent and primate brain. During his PhD he developed a novel organ bioreactor to study real-time metabolomics in diseased states, exploring the relationship between gene expression and the pathophysiology of neurodevelopmental disorders.

Nick received his B.S. in Biology from the California Institute of Technology and his Ph.D. in neuroscience from The University of Southern California.

Panel Discussions:

Panel 1: Biotech and a Sustainable Future

Panel 2: The Future of Clinical Trials
