Position: Assistant Professor of Pediatrics at Harvard Medical School and the Division of Genetics and Genomics at Boston Children’s Hospital, and an Associate Member of the Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard.
Interests: The Flannick lab develops computational approaches to use human genetic and broader genomic data to understand or better treat human diseases, with a current focus on diabetes. Jason’s research has spanned pure computer science, comparative genomics, and finally human genetics, with a current focus on using computational and statistical methods to impact human health. Prior to starting the Flannick lab, Jason was a postdoctoral research fellow in David Altshuler’s lab at Mass Gen Hospital and the Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard. He received his PhD and MS in computer science from Stanford University.
