My name is Theo Roth, and I'm an MSTP student here at UCSF.  I grew up in St. Louis and Birmingham before getting into research, at the National Institutes of Health. In the lab of Dr. Dorian McGavern I worked out key steps in the immune response to brain injuries using intravital two photon microscopy.  Later at Stanford University I worked with Dr. Matthew Scott developing novel synthetic biology approaches to DNA assembly.  I graduated from Stanford with a BS in Biology and an MS in Biomedical Informatics before starting MD and PhD training at UCSF.  I'm interested in Immunology, Genetics, Informatics, and Genome Editing in the context of Cellular Therapeutics.
