Heather King, Ph.D.

Director, Marketing Communications and PR

Heather leads marketing and communications efforts at Precision BioSciences. She previously served as Director of The Chemical Probes Portal at UNC, an online resource for expert advice in preclinical drug discovery. Before that, Heather supported federal research programs at the science communications and consulting firm MDB. Heather holds a doctorate from The Rockefeller University where she studied protein biochemistry and structural biology in the Tri-Institutional Program for Chemical Biology (TPCB) run by Cornell, Rockefeller, and Sloan-Kettering. She was a postdoctoral fellow at NIH (NIEHS) before making the move to science communications and research program support. When she is not thinking about Precision’s message and external communications, Heather is trying to make time for a Peleton class while chasing around two dogs and two boys and working with her husband on their 1960’s modernist fixer-upper.
