Professor Paul Feinstein is chief science officer and co-founder of Yesse Technologies, Inc. Prof. Feinstein is a world expert in the molecular biology of the sense of smell, whose outstanding record of high-quality publications in olfaction spans four decades. These breakthrough concepts that still predominate the field olfactory wiring were published in two back-to-back, 2004 papers in the premier scientific journal, Cell.
As a principal investigator at Hunter College, CUNY for nearly a decade, he continues to characterize the role of odorant receptors in these processes as well as the transcriptional regulation of singular gene choice. He is currently one of a few scientists in the world that directly manipulate odorant receptor gene expression in order to understand odorant coding. Prof. Feinstein received his graduate degree from Columbia University and his post-doctoral training at The Rockefeller University.
