Dylan Kotliar (Harvard University)

I’m a student in the MD/PhD program at Harvard Medical School in the Health Sciences and Technology track and the Harvard Systems Biology PhD program. In my PhD, I am developing computational tools for analyzing single-cell genomic data, and analyzing GWAS and single-cell rna-seq datasets of Ebola and Lassa Virus infections, hoping to understand why these pathogens are so deadly.
