Jeff DeMartino

PhD student

The aim of my PhD projects is to improve our understanding of pediatric soft tissue sarcomas, with a focus on rhabdomyosarcoma (RMS), using advanced molecular and cell biological techniques. These include using single-cell RNA-sequencing to investigate the cellular and transcriptional heterogeneity in RMS tumors, as well as CRISPR-based genetic screens to define novel therapeutic targets.

When I’m not in the lab, you can usually find me watching an NFL game, getting in an early morning workout or relaxing with a good book!
