Rich Sherwood, PhD leads the Sherwood Lab at BWH and HMS, which focuses on the intersection of genomics, genome editing, stem cell biology, and computational biology. Sherwood’s goals include the ability to predict how changes in patients’ genome sequences cause disease, as well as to develop tools to reprogram patient cells into any type of cell at will. Sherwood has a number of publications, including most recently works in Nature Biotechnology and Genome Research, and he holds three patents. Sherwood is currently an instructor of medicine in the division of genetics at BWH. Prior to his position at the Brigham, Sherwood performed an independent fellowship at BWH and HMS. He received his PhD from Harvard University in 2009 and a B.S. in biological sciences at Stanford University.
