Email: Francis.Wright [at]

I grew up in the East Bay before moving to Chico, CA where I studied cell biology and researched blood development in the lab of Dr. David Stachura. After graduating, I studied how Vitamin D impacts hematopoiesis in Danio rerio and worked as a medical scribe at Chico Pediatrics, Southeast Health Center, and Tom Waddell. I am fascinated by immunology, gene editing, and cancer biology. I spend my free timevolunteering at the UCSF Shelter Clinic, running, rock climbing, and hiking with my dog, Jackson.
