Janet Thornton Postdoctoral Fellow

I'm a postdoctoral scientist using CRISPR(i) and hIPSC technologies to understand gene function and human variation at scale. 

My research focuses on functional genomics to understand the function of human genes on large scale. I conduct whole-genome CRISPR-inhibition screens in human induced pluripotent cells (hIPSC) and hIPSC derived cells to identify genes important for cell survival, growth, or other phenotypes.

Besides healthy background, my screens in disease mutation background aim to identify conditional lethal genes, which will ultimately illuminate disease mechanisms.

With combinatorial screens targeting multiple genes at once, I aim to understand gene to gene interactions in hiPSC and hiPSC derived cells.
