Mike Verzi, PI

Mike trained with Brian Black at UCSF and among other projects discovered an unanticipated role for a cardiovascular transcription factor in craniofacial development. He then did a postdoc with Ramesh Shivdasani at Harvard investigating transcription factors at the genome-scale and discovered an unappreciated mechanism of transcription factor activity in the homeostatic intestinal epithelium. His background has a strong impact on the lab, with many projects reflecting his experiences studying transcriptional control of cell behaviors in differentiating systems.

When not in the lab, he enjoys the Giants and Yankees, cooking, his babies, but never cooking his babies.
