Congratulations, Rebecca (GPGG ’14)!
Join us in congratulating Rebecca Kusko for completing her PhD thesis this September in Avrum Spira and Marc Lenbrug’s lab. Her thesis leveraged RNA sequencing and integrative network analysis to identify therapeutic targets in Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis, Emphysema, and Lung Adenocarcinoma in lifetime never smokers. After finishing her work in the Spira/Lenburg lab, she was hired as the Director of Genomics at Immuneering in Kendall Square. At Immuneering, she partners with leading biotech and pharmaceutical companies to use genomic, genetic, and transcriptomic information to predict patient response to compounds.
