Nir Hacohen, PhD
Associate Professor, Medicine, Harvard & Broad Institute
Nir is an immunologist and geneticist who takes a systems-wide approach to reconstruct intracellular immune circuits, explain variation in immunity across the human population and decipher genetic and non-genetic factors driving disease. He is especially interested in developing and applying unbiased approaches to solve these problems. Most recently, he has been studying what drives spontaneous human immunity against cancer, with an eye towards developing personalized therapies based on computational genomics.
