Dr. Kalhor’s research areas include synthetic biology, genome biology, and developmental biology. He specializes in using nucleic acids as a medium to record, transmit, process, and store biological and non-biological information. The Kalhor Lab is developing new DNA-based recording tools for high throughput, high resolution mapping of mammalian development, with a focus on brain development and developmental abnormalities. He is also studying novel ways of directly recording digital and analogue information into DNA. Kalhor’s work draws on molecular engineering, CRISPR-based manipulation, and computational approaches.
Dr. Kalhor received received his PhD in molecular and computational biology from USC, where he studied the relationship between genome function and its 3D structure. His postdoctoral training at the Harvard Medical School Department of Genetics and Wyss Institute focused on storage of digital and biological information in DNA. He joined the BME faculty in 2019.
