Luke Gilbert, PhD

Assistant Professor at University of California, San Francisco

Location: San Francisco, CA United States

Luke Gilbert, PhD, is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Urology at the Helen Diller Family Comprehensive Cancer Center and the Innovative Genomics Institute at the University of California, San Francisco. He received a BS in microbiology/immunology from UCLA, a PhD from MIT in Dr. Mike Hemann’s lab and postdoctoral training with Dr. Jonathan Weissman at UCSF before starting his lab in 2017.

Dr. Gilbert was an early pioneer in repurposed CRISPR systems that are used to turn genes on (CRISPRa) and off (CRISPRi) by editing the epigenome. The Gilbert lab continues to develop new epigenetic editing approaches as well as new CRISPR functional genomics platforms. Recently, the Gilbert lab developed two next-generation CRISPR functional genomics platforms to systematically and quantitatively map genetic interactions.
