David Lahr, Ph.D.

David Lahr is a principal software engineer in the Cancer Program at the Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard, working under the direction of Aravind Subramanian on the Connectivity Map (CMap) project. He is tasked with running, extending, and maintaining the software that converts the raw data to gene expression measurements and other, more easily interpretable results. He also leads a team of associate computational biologists who work on various related projects, giving them exposure to this process and the CMap tools.

Lahr joined the Broad Institute in 2011 as an application engineer. He became a group leader in data analysis and alliance management before moving to his current post in 2014. Prior to that, he worked for data science/analytics company Tessella as a senior analyst programmer after completing his postdoctoral fellowship with the National Institute of Standards and Technology.

Lahr holds a Ph.D. from MIT in physical chemistry and a B.Sc. in chemistry from the University of Rochester (New York).
