The Shain laboratory has recently opened in the Department of Dermatology at the University of California San Francisco!

For the latest news on the Shain laboratory, follow along on Twitter.

The overaching goal of the Shain laboratory is to better understand the biology of melanoma. We use a variety of -omic approaches to delinate the genetic and transcriptomic alterations in melanocytic tissues. Recently, we have initiated single-cell based studies (both DNA- and RNA- single-cell sequencing). For more details related to ongoing projects, please reach out to the PI (Hunter Shain at [email protected]). Scientific positions at all levels are currently open.
