      An NIH-funded physician-scientist, Dr. Cho focuses on cancer evolution and heritable genetics, using emerging imaging and deep sequencing technologies in multicenter collaborations.

      Dr. Cho received both his MD and his PhD in Genetics from the Stanford University School of Medicine. There he collaboratively led the earliest demonstrations of transcriptional profiling, genetic screens, and SNP-based mapping on a whole-genome scale. He subsequently co-founded Ingenuity Systems, a privately funded genetic content and software concern wholly acquired by Qiagen in 2013.

      Dr. Cho has been recognized with the Samsung Global Research Outreach Award and the American Academy of Dermatology Young Investigator Award. He was the Abby S. & Howard P. Milstein Research Scholar in Melanoma and received a Career Development Award from the Dermatology Foundation. In his spare time he cultivates a phylogenetic tree on which shawarma and tacos al pastor uneasily share a branch.
