Jaime Cheah

Jaime Cheah is a research scientist in the Chemical Biology Program who works on the National Cancer Institute–sponsored Cancer Target Discovery and Development (CTD2) Cell Line Profiling project. This project involves profiling cancer cell lines with known genetic information against highly specific small molecule probes, measuring cell viability, and then correlating the cancer cell genetics to compound sensitivity. The hope is one day to link genetically matched cancer patients to drugs that might yield better treatment responses.

Cheah received a B.S. in biochemistry from McGill University and a Ph.D. in biochemistry, cellular and molecular biology, with a concentration in neuroscience, from Johns Hopkins School of Medicine. She was a post-doctoral fellow at Novartis Institutes for BioMedical Research.
