Jason Hong graduated from Princeton University with a major in Molecular Biology and a minor in Global Health and Health Policy. Jason first started working in the Thiele laboratory in 2018 as a Special Volunteer and is now a CRTA postbac fellow. He previously helped create CRISPR-dCas9 constructs to target SOX11 and SOX4 super-enhancers in neuroblastoma (NB). His current project aims to identify the looping factors involved in the regulation of MYCN and core regulatory circuitry target genes. Jason ultimately hopes to identify novel therapeutic targets in the treatment of NB high-risk patients.
