Jason J. PITT

Cancer Science Institute of Singapore

Dr. Jason Pitt received his Bachelor’s degree in Biology with Honors from Gustavus Adolphus College. After a two year post-baccalaureate fellowship at the Genetics Branch of the National Cancer Institute (USA), he went on to earn his Ph.D. in Genetics, Genomics, and Systems Biology from the University of Chicago. There, under the guidance of Dr. Kevin White, he 1) developed computational workflows to efficiently process high-throughput sequencing data; 2) explored interactions between germline and somatic variation in cancer, and 3) investigated the genomics of racial disparities in breast cancer. In 2018, he started a laboratory at the Cancer Science Institute of Singapore (NUS) as a Special Fellow. In addition to conducting large-scale genome analyses, his laboratory focuses on developing innovative software for the identification, harmonization, and interrogation of genomic datasets
