Evan Clark is a graduate student researching the biochemical regulatory network of human T cells through the utilization of high-throughput RNA sequencing and downstream genomic analysis. He is currently focused on understanding changes in splicing patterns and gene expression modulated by selected RNA binding proteins in virally infected cells. He is currently aiming for a career in personalized medicine and translational biomedical research, with specialization in immunology and biomedical informatics. He has earned a Bachelors of Science in Biology from Florida Atlantic Universities’ College of Science, and will be graduating with a Masters of Science in Bioengineering from the College of Engineering in Fall 2016. He plans to obtain both and M.D. and Ph.D. to conduct translational clinical research in immunotherapy and biological big-data mining.
