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 characterizing the epigenome of colon cancer, to reading the transcriptome of the hummingbird, to assembling the genome of the giant sequoia.
Positions are available for postdoctoral fellows, graduate students, and technicians.
