Genetic architecture of morphologic variation

Greg Barsh, MD, PhD, is a faculty investigator at the HudsonAlpha Institute for Biotechnology and a Professor Emeritus at Stanford University. He studies the genetic mechanisms that underlie differences in individual appearance and for which a deeper understanding promises new insight into both basic biology and human disease. Barsh received his MD and PhD in human genetics and pathology from the University of Washington in Seattle in 1984. He completed a residency in internal medicine at Harbor-UCLA Medical Center in Torrance, Calif., in 1986, postdoctoral training at the University of California in San Francisco in 1989 and a postdoctoral fellowship in the department of pediatrics at UCSF in 1989. Barsh joined HudsonAlpha in 2009.
