Jason D. Buenrostro, Ph.D.
Jason Buenrostro is a fellow in the Broad Fellows program at the Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard, and a junior fellow at the Harvard University Society of Fellows.
At the Broad Institute, Buenrostro is developing new methods for understanding gene regulation within complex human tissues. To do this, the Buenrostro lab is integrating approaches across molecular biology, microscopy, and large-scale bioinformatics to reveal new insights into the regulatory diversity of single cells within healthy and diseased tissues. The Broad Fellows program uniquely empowers Buenrostro to pursue new and innovative avenues of research with financial support and intellectual independence. The program also facilitates outstanding mentorship by senior Broad members, an invaluable resource as fellows begin their independent careers. All together, the Broad Institute and Broad Fellows program provides a unique research environment empowering young scientists for high-impact scientific discovery.
Buenrostro earned a B.S. in general engineering and a B.S. in biology at Santa Clara University. He did his doctoral work at the Stanford University Department of Genetics. At Stanford University he developed new high-throughput genomics methods for enabling a quantitative understanding of gene regulation.
