Juan Pablo, Ph.D.

Juan “Juanchi” Pablo  is a research scientist in the Center for the Development of Therapeutics (CDoT) and the Stanley Center for Psychiatric Research of the Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard, where he works under the direction of Anna Greka and Jen Pan on the study of ion channels, membrane proteins that regulate all aspects of cellular function. He is now working toward translating our knowledge of these channels into clinically relevant discoveries. This takes the form of three major avenues: 1) identifying modulators of channel function with therapeutic potential, 2) elucidating the mechanism of action of substances that could be affecting ion channels, and 3) testing possible disease-causing mutations in ion channel genes. 

Prior to joining the Broad Institute in 2017, Pablo completed postdoctoral research fellowships at Boston Children’s Hospital/Harvard Medical School and Howard Hughes Medical Institute.

Pablo obtained a Ph.D. in neurobiology along with a certificate in cell and molecular biology from Duke University. He also holds a bachelor’s degree in molecular biology and biotechnology from the University of the Philippines.
