Martin Hirst, PhD Director, Associate Professor, and Associate Director, Canadian Epigenetics, Environment and Health Research Consortium (CEEHRC) Network, UBC, Michael Smith Laboratories

Dr. Hirst’s research focuses on understanding epigenetic dysfunction in cancer and his laboratory develops experimental and computational tools to characterize normal and transformed cell types down to the single cell level. He applies these tools to explore the epigenomic states of normal and transformed cell types to discover and exploit therapeutic vulnerabilities.
