Justin Bosch, Ph.D.
Before attending graduate school, I studied plant evolution at UW-Madison and zebrafish developmental genetics at UCSF. For my PhD, I worked with Iswar Hariharan at the UC Berkeley, where I used genetics and cell biology to investigate the molecular mechanisms of tissue growth in Drosophila. In the Perrimon lab, I am studying intercellular communication using the TurboID labeling enzyme and characterizing peptides encoded by small open reading frame genes (smORFs). In addition, I am developing gene-editing methods to better characterize gene function in Drosophila. I organize both a journal club and seminar series on genome engineering at HMS.
