Amanda Poholek’s interest in immune-mediated disease and how transcription factors contribute to T cell differentiation and function began while pursuing her doctorate degree at Yale University. She expanded her understanding of how transcription factors contribute to differentiation at the chromatin level during her post-doctoral training at the National Institutes of Health, where she learned how NextGen Sequencing can be used to interrogate chromatin accessibility, epigenetics and transcriptome analysis. She moved to the University of Pittsburgh in 2015 to begin her own lab and became director of the Health Science Sequencing Core in 2017.
