CURE ESI webinar; FIND-seq identifies HIV silencing and cell survival signatures in infected T cell reservoirs
Join us for UNC CFAR's Cure ESI webinar on "FIND-seq identifies HIV silencing and cell survival signatures in infected T cell reservoirs"

Speaker; Iain Clark, UC Berkeley

Bio: Iain Clark is an Assistant Professor in the Bioengineering Department at the University of California, Berkeley, and a faculty affiliate at the California Institute for Quantitative Biosciences. He received his BS in Biological Engineering from Cornell University, an MS in Biosystems Engineering from UC Davis, and a Ph.D. in Environmental Engineering from UC Berkeley. As a postdoc at UCSF, he used fluid mechanics, computer modeling, and microfabrication to advance droplet microfluidic technologies for single-cell analysis. His work led to the development of multiple new microfluidic devices and enabled ultra-high throughput and integrated on-chip cell processing, targeted single-cell barcoding, and single-cell genome and transcriptome sequencing. As a fellow at Harvard Medical School, he pioneered new methods for isolating and studying rare pathologic cells and developed novel barcoded viral tracing methods for brain connectomics. His first author work has been published in top microfluidic and biology journals, including Nature and Science, and he is a recipient of the NIH K22 Career Transition Award and the NIAID New Innovator Award. Research in the Clark lab at UC Berkeley combines tools from multiple disciplines - molecular biology, microfluidics, engineering, and bioinformatics - to study infectious diseases, central nervous system inflammation, and neural circuit connectivity. Current projects center on two biological questions with important human health implications: what are the unique properties of cells harboring latent HIV in vivo, and what are the molecular mechanisms that control cell interactions in neurodegenerative diseases?
