Liz Werren, Ph.D.

Clinical Genomics Scientist

Germline and somatic genetic variant discovery and annotation in developmental disorders and cancer using cutting-edge sequencing technologies.

I joined JAX Genomic Medicine in November 2022 from the University of Michigan, where I obtained my PhD in Human Genetics in September 2022. My dissertation research focused on the genetic and molecular mechanisms of developmental disorders and human cortical evolution using human organoid model systems. I also have past research experience studying the population genetics of human adaptive traits.
