Nick is our newest Research Scientist. Prior to joining the lab, he received his B.A. in Biology from the University of Pennsylvania in 2015. As an undergraduate, he studied the molecular basis of FTLD-ALS and blood-based biomarkers for Parkinson’s disease. Nick joined the Mefford Lab to learn the latest genomic techniques and gain a better understanding of how genome science is revolutionizing the practice of precision medicine. He plans to continue on to medical school next year. During his free time, Nick likes to run, hike, and kayak the PNW.
