Dr. Jean Fan

Assistant Professor

I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Biomedical Engineering at Johns Hopkins University. I was previously an NCI F99/K00 post-doctoral fellow in the lab of Dr. Xiaowei Zhuang at Harvard University. I received my PhD in Bioinformatics and Integrative Genomics at Harvard under the mentorship of Dr. Peter Kharchenko at the Department of Biomedical Informatics and in close collaboration with Dr. Catherine Wu at the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute. In my free time, I enjoy writing code to forward STEM education. Once in awhile, I try to make time for photography.

    Brendan Miller

    Post-doctoral Fellow

    I am a post-doctoral researcher recently graduated from the Cellular, Molecular, Developmental Biology and Biophysics Department at Johns Hopkins Univeristy. I was also part of the Graduate Partnership Program between Johns Hopkins University and the National Institutes of Health. During my PhD I developed cancer detection assays based on patterns of DNA methylation in circulating cell-free DNA from blood plasma samples (aka liquid biopsies). I'm excited to integrate my foundational training as a wet lab biologist with computational strategies to help solve fundamental problems in health and disease!

    Kalen Clifton

    Graduate Student

    I am a PhD student in the biomedical engineering program at Hopkins. I am interested in using math and programming to study biological spatial organization. As an undergraduate at William & Mary, I majored in computational and applied math while pursuing research in biology. For a research project in synthetic biology, I characterized the increase in gene expression that can result from using ribozyme insulators in genetic circuits. Currently, I am involved in supporting STEM education and career development through mentoring the Hopkins iGEM team and serving on the executive board of JHU BME EDGE. Also, I enjoy volleyball and visual arts (infrequently via painting; frequently via television).

    Lyla Atta

    Graduate Student

    I am currently an MD-PhD candidate pursuing my PhD in Biomedical Engineering. I am interested systems biology and data science and am excited about how computational and mathematical methods can be used to understand complexity in disease. In my free time, I like to read, paint, and go to art and history museums.

  • Manjari Anant

    Manjari Anant

    Graduate Student

    I am a Neuroscience PhD student, coadvised by Dr. Justus Kebschull. I am interested in understanding how the genetic and connectivity patterns of cells in the brain change during development and across species, with a focus on the cerebellar nuclei. In my spare time, I like hiking and exploring Baltimore!
