Amelia Weber Hall is a computational biology Research Fellow in Medical and Population Genetics, and a member of the Ellinor Lab. She performs functional genomics experiments at the bench, in addition to data analysis for a number of projects. Her work focuses on understanding the mechanisms of phenotype variation originating from the non-coding genome. In her work for the PCL, she studies transcriptome analysis in engineered cardiomyocytes, and is part of the single cell mapping efforts in human and rat heart. Prior to joining the Broad Institute and Massachusetts General Hospital in 2017, Hall was first a research technician, and then a graduate student at the University of Texas at Austin. Her work as a technician focused on incorporating non-natural amino acids into the calcium signaling protein calmodulin. As a graduate student, her research centered on building models of chromatin and transcription in primary glioblastoma samples. Hall holds a Ph.D. in microbiology from the University of Texas at Austin, and a B.S. in molecular genetics from the University of Rochester.
