Duygu Ucar, PhD


Assistant Professor

PhD: Ohio State University, Computer Science 

Postdoctoral Studies:  University of Iowa, Internal Medicine , Stanford University, Genetics 

I am a computer scientist with interdisciplinary training in computer science, epigenomics, and the biology of aging. The overarching goal of my lab is to build integrative and innovative computational resources to uncover intricate regulatory programs in human cells and understand how these programs are disrupted by aging and aging-related diseases.
