Associate Director, Genetic Perturbation Platform
Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard
John G. Doench is the Associate Director of the Genetic Perturbation Platform at the Broad Institute. He develops and applies the latest approaches in functional genomics, including RNAi, ORF, and CRISPR technologies, to understand the function of genes and how gene dysfunction leads to disease. John collaborates with researchers across the Broad, the Boston community, and the world to develop faithful biological models and execute genetic screens.
Prior to joining the Broad in 2009, John did his postdoctoral work at Harvard Medical School, received his PhD from the biology department at MIT, and majored in history at Hamilton College. John lives in Jamaica Plain, MA with his wife and daughter, where he enjoys coaching soccer, playing volleyball, cheering on the Red Sox and Patriots, and avoiding imminent death while navigating the streets of Boston on a bicycle.
