Weiwei ZHAI

Genome Institute of Singapore

Weiwei is a Senior Research Scientist (PI) from the Genome Institute of Singapore. Weiwei was trained as an evolutionary geneticist with a Ph.D in Population Genetics from University of California at Berkeley. He used to study organismal evolution (e.g. Human and dogs). In the past few years, he has specialized in studying the origin of intra-tumor heterogeneity in liver and lung cancers. By employing approaches from evolutionary genetics, he is trying to link the level of tumor heterogeneity to patient clinical trajectories and treatment responses.
