Engineering Faculty Join New Center for Sub-Cellular Genomics

Established with a five-year, $10.5 million grant from the NIH, Penn’s new Center for Sub-Cellular Genomics aims to bring together experts in genomics, neurosurgery, neuroscience, nanotechnology, informatics, and mass spectrometry to investigate biological mechanisms on the level of individual neurons.

The Center will be led by grant recipients Junhyong Kim, chair and Patricia M. Williams Professor of Biology in the School of Arts and Sciences, and James Eberwine, Elmer Holmes Bobst Professor of Systems Pharmacology and Translational Therapeutics in the Perelman School of Medicine. Kim is also a faculty affiliate of the Warren Center for Network & Data Sciences.

David Issadore, assistant professor in the departments of Bioengineering and Electrical and Systems Engineering, and Daeyeon Lee, professor in the Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering, are among the Center’s initial co-investigators.
