Winston Timp, PhD

Assistant ProfessorJohns Hopkins University

Winston Timp is an assistant professor in Biomedical Engineering at Johns Hopkins University.  His lab’s focus is in the development and application of sequencing technologies to gain a deeper understanding of biology and a more accurate set of clinical tools for human disease. Timp’s research integrates the principles of biophysics, molecular biology, and computational biology to create new tools for exploring the epigenome and genome of various lifeforms, ranging in size from the flu virus to hummingbirds to California redwoods. Based on the knowledge gained from these studies, Timp and his lab apply their toolsets to clinical samples for the diagnosis, surveillance and treatment of human disease. Recent projects in Timp’s lab include new sequencing methods to diagnose infectious disease and characterizing the genomic features of cancer.
