A portrait of John Stamatoyannopoulos

John Stamatoyannopoulos, M.D.

Professor of Medicine and Genome Sciences

Dr. Stamatoyannopoulos' laboratory is using high-throughput molecular and computational technologies to decode the regulatory circuitry of the human and other complex genomes. Major ongoing efforts are (i) to create comprehensive atlases of regulatory DNA encoded in the human and mouse genomes; (ii) to define the regulatory networks that control cell fate and response; (iii) to map regulatory variants associated with common human diseases and define their mechanism(s); and (iv) to develop next-generation technologies for analyzing and reprogramming the regulatory genome.

Dr. Stamatoyannopoulos directs the UW ENCODE Project Center, the Northwest Epigenome Center, and the UW High-Throughput Genomics Center. He holds degrees in Biological Sciences, Symbolic Systems, and Classics from Stanford University, and an M.D. from the University of Washington School of Medicine. Dr. Stamatoyannopoulos completed his medical training at Harvard Medical School, including internship and residency in Internal Medicine at Brigham and Women's Hospital, and fellowship in Oncology and Hematology at the Dana Farber Cancer Institute and Massachusetts General Hospital.
