Jason D. Buenrostro

Jason Buenrostro is an institute member of the Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard and an associate professor at Harvard University in the Department of Stem Cell and Regenerative Biology. Buenrostro looks to understand how cells acquire and reverse epigenetic changes and how these changes lead to disease. To do this, Buenrostro is developing new approaches for measuring gene regulation dynamics at single-cell resolution. He also co-leads the Gene Regulation Observatory at the Broad.

Buenrostro is a 2023 recipient of a MacArthur Foundation Fellowship for developing methods and technologies that advance our understanding of the mechanisms regulating gene expression.

Buenrostro earned a B.S. in general engineering and a B.S. in biology at Santa Clara University. He did his doctoral work at Stanford University in the Department of Genetics with William Greenleaf and Howard Chang.
