Paul Reginato[Email: reginato, followed by @mit.edu]
Paul is interested in developing technology to integrate the high-dimensional 'omic' data that characterizes modern biology with the 3-dimensional reality of biological systems. The big picture goal, in collaboration with many others, is to know the function and location of biomolecules of interest throughout tissues -- that is, obtaining comprehensive molecular maps of tissues. To approach this goal, he is applying and extending fluorescent in situ sequencing (FISSEQ) and expansion microscopy (ExM) technologies. Paul completed a BS degree in Biology and Mathematics from the University of Waterloo. As a Biological Engineering PhD student at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Paul works in the Boyden lab and the Church lab (Harvard) on novel biotechnologies.
