Linus Tsai, MD, PhD
Assistant Professor, Harvard Medical School
Division of Endocrinology, Diabetes and Metabolism, Department of Medicine, Beth Israel Deaconness Medical Center
Co-Director, Boston Nutrition and Obesity Center Functional Genomics and Bioinformatics Core
Linus received his MD/PhD from U.C. San Francisco and performed his graduate studies in Ulrike Heberlein's lab studying the genetics of acute responses to drugs of abuse in Drosophila Melanogaster. After an internal medicine residency at BIDMC Harvard and clinical endocrine fellowship at BIDMC/Joslin, he received postdoctoral training in Evan Rosen’s lab (molecular and genetic control of adipocyte development and metabolism), in the areas of epigenomic profiling, transcriptional regulation, and molecular bases of insulin resistance.
Linus has a longstanding interest in the unbiased application of genetics and genomics to better understand the function of molecular and cell-cell circuits.
More importantly, he is the proud dad of Oscar and Satchel, and can be found enjoying (or driving to and from) baseball and lacrosse games, following their favorite Oakland Athletics and Houston Rockets, or cooking/eating anything and everything.
