Specialization in Biochemistry Research with Dr. Ira Hall

Mitchell is a candidate for his B.S. in Chemistry with Specialization in Biochemistry from Bellmore, NY.  He is working with Dr. Ira Hall in the Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Genetics using recently sequenced cancer genomes to investigate the impact of complex structural rearrangements on cancer evolution.  Mitchell has been doing research with Ira since his first year at UVa, and has already been included on two publications involving structural rearrangement in the mouse genome, as well as variation in induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs).
