Advisory Board Member at Verge Genomics
Dr. Hani Goodarzi is an Assistant Professor at the University of California, San Francisco. With a dual background in computational and experimental genomics, he brings a multidisciplinary approach to studying human disease. His research is focused on developing strategies that enable an unbiased search for previously unknown pathways that drive oncogenesis, metastasis, and neurodegeneration. By developing novel technologies for genome-wide measurement of hard-to-quantify RNA molecules, he has made key discoveries about the role of oncRNA, tRNAs, and tRNA fragments in cancer metastasis. On the computational front, Dr. Goodarzi is focused on building network analytical models that help elucidate key pathways and processes that drive human disease. In 2017, for his contributions to cancer research, he was awarded the Martin and Rose Wachtel Award in Cancer Research and was recently named a Kimmel scholar. He was previously a recipient of the prestigious Blavatnik award for young scientists as well as the Tri-institutional Breakout prize.
