Alejandro (alex) Chavez
Alejandro (Alex) Chavez is a board-eligible clinical pathologist, a Clinical Fellow in Pathology at Massachusetts General Hospital, and a Postdoctoral Fellow in the Church and Collins labs at the Wyss Institute for Biologically Inspired Engineering. Alex received his MD PhD from the University of Pennsylvania. In his research, Alex employs Cas9-based tools for the programmable control of DNA and RNA on genome-wide scales. His work has generated methods that endow Cas9 with single nucleotide specificity and enable facile genome modification, activation, or repression, in any desired combination.
