BIO

Michael Bassik is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Genetics at Stanford University.  He performed his Ph.D work in Stanley Korsmeyer’s lab at Harvard, exploring the role of BCL-2 phosphorylation in regulating cell death.  As a postdoc in Jonathan Weissman’s lab at UCSF, he developed new high-coverage shRNA screening libraries and mammalian genetic interaction maps, applying these to study the biology of retrograde toxins.  His laboratory at Stanford focuses on the continued development of shRNA and CRISPR/Cas9 systems for high-throughput screening, and on application of these technologies to study mechanisms of cellular uptake and novel drug target identification in cancer.
