William Greenleaf

William Greenleaf, PhD, is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Genetics at Stanford University. He received his AB in Physics from Harvard, his PhD in Applied Physics from Stanford, and carried out postdoctoral research in the Department of Chemistry and Chemical Biology at Harvard. His lab is interested in leveraging new sequencing methods and technologies to understand the physical genome. He is investigating both how the genome is packaged, protected, sequestered, and made accessible within the cell nucleus, as well as how changes in DNA sequence relates changes in structure and function of encoded biological macromolecules.
