As a graduate student in the lab of Dr. Steven Henikoff at the Fred Hutch Cancer Research Center, Steven developed high throughput methods to profile DNA-binding proteins in single-cells and identify various cellular subtypes. His work was part of a large-scale effort, known as the Human Cell Atlas, to build a comprehensive map of all the cell types in the human body to better understand human health and improve disease diagnosis and treatment. Steven joined the San Francisco based biotechnology company Freenome as a Research and Development Computational Biologist where he will be working on epigenetic modeling.
