Louis Metzger – Principal Scientist



Louis Metzger is a principal scientist in the Infectious Diseases division of Novartis, where he leads a project team endeavoring to discover novel antibiotics.  He is therefore acutely aware of the need to develop new chemical matter to aid in anti-infective therapeutic discovery.  Synthetic biology may enable infectious disease researchers to access promising and hitherto under-utilized regions of the chemical universe.
