Greg Cooper, PhD

Human Genetics and Genomics

Greg Cooper, PhD, is a faculty investigator at the HudsonAlpha Institute for Biotechnology. Throughout his career, Cooper has focused on understanding the structures, functions and evolutionary histories of individual human genomes and finding ways to translate that understanding into useful predictions about human health and disease. Cooper earned a PhD in genetics from Stanford University in 2006. He completed postdoctoral research at the University of Washington in 2009 before joining HudsonAlpha in 2010.
