Timothy earned his PhD from the University of Utah where he studied the development and differentiation of CD8 + T Cells, with a particular focus on the transcription factor Snai3.
Upon graduation, he pivoted into the genome engineering field; first optimizing the use of High-Resolution Melt Analysis for induced mutation detection in Zebrafish, then helping to develop and optimize the use of ZFN and TALEN engineered DNA nucleases in the Zebrafish model organism. Most recently he was the Director of the Mutation Generation and Detection Core Research Facility at the University of Utah, helping researchers implement TALEN and CRISPR-Cas9 genome engineering technologies in multiple model organism including mice, zebrafish, drosophila, rainbow trout, mosquitos, and mammalian cell lines. A transplant from the glorious state of Iowa, Timothy enjoys exploring all that SLC and the Wasatch have to offer on two wheels or two sticks.
