Jacob’s PhD research examined fundamental cell biology questions around how the body’s cells purposely initiate, process, and repair DNA breaks during cell division, while avoiding catastrophic consequences. Now, he aims to pivot into systems biology to work with fruit flies to explore tissue communication networks and to develop a systems-level understanding of disease.
