Genome Sciences is pleased to announce that Dr. Nobuhiko Hamazaki has accepted an offer to be a joint faculty member in Genome Sciences, Ob-Gyn, and ISCRM, based in the South Lake Union campus in Ob-Gyn research space. He was a graduate student at Kyoto University, and a postdoctoral fellow at Kyushu University, where he worked to establish a method to induce oocytes from mouse pluripotent stem cells entirely in vitro. He then worked with Jay Shendure in Genome Sciences on stem cell-derived human gastruloids. Dr. Hamazaki’s research lies at the interface of peri-implantation embryonic development; reproductive biology; stem cell engineering; and genomic technology.
Genome Sciences is pleased to announce that Dr. Chia-Lin Wei from the Jackson Laboratory has accepted our offer to be a professor in the department and director of the Northwest Genomics Center beginning this fall. Dr. Wei’s research program includes the development and optimization of new genomic technologies and the analysis of chromatin structure. Dr. Wei has built and directed three large-scale sequencing centers, at the Genome Institute of Singapore, the Joint Genome Institute and the Jackson Laboratory.
