Timp Lab

The Timp Lab is in the Department of Biomedical Engineering at Johns Hopkins University.  We are located at Clark Hall on the Homewood campus.


Our research focus is deciphering the biophysical basis of gene regulation, integrating information from genetics, epigenetics, and systems biology.  But to get there, we are creating new tools to explore genetics, using a combination of nanotechnology, next-generation sequencing, and optical techniques.


Recent projects range from diagnosis of infectious disease using nanopore sequencing, to examining DNA and RNA modifications using nanopores, to reading full-length transcriptomes of C. elegans, humans and even hummingbirds, to assembling the genome of the giant sequoia.

Positions are available for postdocs, graduate students, and technicians.
