Meet Our Researchers

Aziz Al'Khafaji

Postdoctoral Researcher, Cellular Biology Program, Broad Institute

Aziz is improving our ability to look inside single cells to better decipher what is happening in health and disease.

Project Description

Aziz recently pioneered a new technology, called MAS-seq, that timestamps RNA sequencing data, allowing researchers to better investigate individual cells’ behaviors at a specific moment in time, making it possible to capture complex cellular dynamics, such as how tumor cells evolve. Aziz will use his BroadIgnite funding to take MAS-seq to the next level, ensuring its accuracy and rigorousness for studying disease.
