Dr. Tim Yu is a Neurogeneticist and Researcher at Boston Children's Hospital, Harvard Medical School and the Broad Institute. He was an early pioneer in molecular and bioinformatic methodology for human genome sequencing and its application to the genetics of human disease. His research group in the Division of Genetics and Genomics works at the intersection of genetics, informatics, and neurobiology to understand human neurodevelopment and advance genomic medicine. Current projects range from human population genetic analyses of autism, to genome sequencing for newborn screening and neonatal ICU care, to the development of individualized genomic medicines for rare pediatric disease.
