Introducing January Guest Blogger: Dr. Steven Jones
January 4, 2016
Thank you to our December guest blogger, Dr. Howard Lim, who shared how his passion for science as a child led to a career treating people with cancer and doing research on this challenging and complex disease.
This month, we’re excited to welcome Dr. Steven Jones, the Head of Bioinformatics and Associate Director at the Michael Smith Genome Sciences Centre.
Dr. Jones is a detective, though not of the crime fighting type you might think. Instead of a tweed hat and Sherlock Holmes-like magnifying glass, Dr. Jones and his team have high tech machines and use robotics to sequence cancer. This information is being used to understand how the disease mutates, and will help to mitigate the disease or find new ways to treat the cancer.
Join me in reading along this month to learn more about Dr. Jones’ work.
