Dr. Kalhor’s research seeks to advance our understanding of continuously dynamic biological processes, such as development and cancer formation, by recording cells’ experiences in their genomes.

To accomplish this objective, his group develops: (A) molecular technologies that write cellular experiences to their genomic DNA, (B) sequencing strategies that read out written information with high cellular and spatial resolution, and (C) computational methods that reconstruct the underlying biological processes based on recorded information. Their work draws on genomics, molecular engineering, CRISPR-based genome editing, and computational approaches to address brain development, developmental anomalies, and cancer.


To advance neuroscience discovery by uniting neuroscience, engineering and computational data science to understand the structure and function of the brain.
