The Center for Computational and Genomic Medicine presents a Lecture Series:
Dynamics of 3D Genome Structure and Function
Anders Sejr Hansen, PhD
Underwood-Prescott Career Development Professor
Department of Biological Engineering, MIT
Anders Sejr Hansen, PhD, obtained his undergraduate and Master's degree in Chemistry at Oxford University in 2010. He received his PhD in Chemistry and Chemical Biology from Harvard University in 2015, where he worked with Erin O'Shea and applied systems biology approaches to understand how cells can encode and transmit information in the dynamics of transcription factor activation. For his post-doc at UC Berkeley with Robert Tjian and Xavier Darzacq, Hansen developed new imaging approaches to track single proteins in living cells and applied these to understand the mechanisms of key architectural proteins involved in 3D genome organization.
Hansen began his independent lab at MIT in 2020 where he is currently the Underwood-Prescott Career Development Professor of Biological Engineering. The Hansen lab is broadly interested in 3D genome structure and function and develops new super-resolution and single-molecule imaging methods to track chromatin looping, transcription, and protein dynamics in living cells as well as new 3D genome structure mapping methods. Current application areas of interest include the dynamics of chromatin looping and transcription, how misfolding of the genome causes disease, the basic mechanisms of 3D genome folding, and synthetic 3D genome biology.
