Bio

Dr. Guttman is a Professor in the Division of Biology and Biological Engineering at the California Institute of Technology. His lab aims to understand how lncRNAs, a class of noncoding genes described by Dr. Guttman, perform many jobs in the cell, among them regulating the plasticity of embryonic stem cells and controlling how stem cells become any other kind of cell. He completed his postdoctoral studies at MIT and the Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard.
