Brian Truong

Brian Truong is a 3rd year graduate student in the Department of Molecular and Medical Pharmacology. Currently in the lab of Dr. Gerald Lipshutz, he is combining human induced pluripotent stem cell (hiPSC) research and genome-editing technologies to develop novel therapies for arginase deficiency and other urea cycle disorders. He received his undergraduate degree at UCLA in Molecular, Cell, and Developmental Biology where he performed research focusing on major issues precluding hiPSC-based therapies from the clinic including genomic instability and immunogenicity. After getting his PhD, Brian plans to pursue a career in industry.
