Kip West

Kip grew up in Milwaukee, Wisconsin and went to college at the University of Wisconsin-Madison (GO BADGERS!) and played baseball there. He did his Ph.D. in cancer biology at Syracuse and his post-docs at the National Cancer Institute in Bethesda, Maryland and at Harvard Medical School in Massachusetts.

He has worked for multiple biotech companies in the Boston area including Merrimack Pharmaceuticals, Infinity Pharmaceuticals, Epizyme Therapeutics and Synlogic Therapeutics, mostly in the oncology and inflammatory disease spaces.

He lives in Nahant (and has for the past 15 years), an island off the coast of the North Shore of Massachusetts, with his wife and three sons.

In his free time, he enjoys coaching his son’s football and basketball teams and staying active (he does CrossFit, runs, hikes, snowboards and plays golf and softball). He is also a rabid Green Bay Packers (GO PACK GO!) and Milwaukee Bucks (FEAR THE DEER!) fan.
