Personal bio
Melissa Ko earned an S.B. in biology from MIT and a PhD in cancer biology from Stanford University. Her research aims to develop novel computational pipelines to make sense of the deluge of single-cell high-dimensional data collected by biologists. Using visualizations and modeling, Melissa reveals mechanisms of drug resistance in cancer and identifies more effective treatment combinations. Melissa has taught computational and cancer biology workshops at Stanford University as well as general biology at Foothill College. As a Thinking Matters Fellow, Melissa teaches THINK 3: Breaking Codes, Finding Patterns, THINK 61: Living with Viruses, and THINK 23: The Cancer Problem: Causes, Treatments, and Prevention. Outside of work, Melissa enjoys cooking, playing video games, reading poetry, and going on walks in the park.
