About the speaker:
Andrew Bleloch recently moved to the Bay Area to join Halcyon Molecular after more than 8 years running the UK's SuperSTEM Laboratory at Daresbury, in conjunction with a professorship at the University of Liverpool. Prior to that, Andrew spent a decade as a fellow of Emmanuel College, with a total of 17 years at the Cavendish Laboratory in Cambridge. His interdisciplinary work in electron microscopy has allowed him to publish professionally in a wide range of fields, including biology, chemistry, materials science and physics. This ascetically academic career has prepared him well for his new role as Head of Microscopy at Halcyon, where he is engaged in applying the latest techniques in electron microscopy to the most important problem he has ever had the privilege of tackling — cheap, fast, ubiquitous genome sequencing.
