Christopher Dinsmore, Ph.D.


Every day, I have the opportunity to work with and learn from amazing and talented people to combine ideas and drive innovative science forward.

Christopher Dinsmore

At Third Rock, Chris focuses on launching new drug discovery and development engines, drawing on the insights he gained during past experiences and his network of colleagues in order to advance lifesaving technologies. Chris is excited to be part of a team that works every day to best combine patient need, new science, new technologies and creative business approaches to enable new medicines to be invented and brought to patients. He appreciates the positive energy and optimism from his colleagues who have chosen to devote their careers to creating new possibilities in biomedicine.

Outside the office, Chris enjoys spending time outdoors. He is most proud of the high places he has reached on past hikes and climbs, and now seeing the heights his kids are able to reach on their own journeys.
