We are pleased to announce that Tychele Turner, Ph.D., will join the faculty at Washington University Department of Genetics as an Assistant Professor of Genetics in Fall 2019. Tychele is currently a Senior Research Fellow in the laboratory of Evan Eichler at the University of Washington. She previously received a K99 grant award to work on computational genomic studies of autism in the Eichler lab. At Washington University, Tychele will continue to pursue her interest in the human genetics of autism, both at the genomic level and in developing new methods for evaluating non-coding disease-associated variants uncovered by her computational evaluation.

Welcome, Tychele!
