Short Biography

Timothy Blosser is a research scientist at the Stanley Center for Psychiatric Research at the Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard. His current work in the neurobiology group focuses on developing neuronal-circuit based assays for screening genetic variants related to psychiatric diseases. Additionally, he uses single-cell RNA-seq methods to understand the cellular diversity within brain regions that exhibit dysfunction in disease.

Prior to joining the Broad Institute in 2014, Blosser worked in the field of single-molecule biophysics. He was awarded the European Union’s Marie Curie Postdoctoral Fellowship to work at the Technical University of Delft, having previously completed a postdoc at Harvard University in the lab of Xiaowei Zhuang. He also worked as an undergraduate researcher for AstraZeneca prior to his doctoral studies.
