Imaging Scientist
Kwasi Agbleke
Kwasi obtained his doctorate from the University of Alabama at Birmingham, USA, in Biochemistry and Molecular Genetics in 2013. He worked with Dr. Patrick Higgins on the coupling of transcription and gyrase in maintaining steady supercoiling state and cell growth. Kwasi joined Dr. Nancy Kleckner’s Laboratory at Harvard University immediately after graduation to study homologous chromosome interaction by tracking cells over many generations through live cell imaging. He also worked with Dr. Ting Wu at the Harvard Medical School where he developed an assay for live cell imaging in mammalian cells using Oligopaint technology. He applied bioinformatics tools to mine the human genome to label live mammalian cells. Most recently, Kwasi worked with Dr. Andrew Seeber at the Center of Advanced Imaging, Harvard University, where he used Knime Analytics to process high-throughput imaging data. Kwasi joined the HCBI as an Imaging Scientist in 2020.
