Biography

Christopher Loo, PhD, is a Biological Data Science Fellow in the Informatics department focusing on bridging immunology research and computational biology. His role includes analyzing clinical trial data to assist with driving novel insights optimizing personalized immunotherapy to treat and cure cancer.

Chris earned his PhD in Immunology at Oregon Health & Science University (OHSU) under the mentorship of Dr. Ann Hill. In his graduate work, he characterized T cell responses in both viral and cancer models of disease.

Chris has more than 10 years of immunology research experience, which started at Gladstone Institutes and the University of California, San Francisco. More recently, his work has crossed into computational immunology with a MS in Bioinformatics from OHSU, where he studied under Dr. Evan Lind and Dr. Reid Thompson for the in-silico prediction of neoepitopes in Acute Myeloid Leukemia. Chris resides in Portland, Oregon, and has roots in Los Angeles, Santa Cruz, and San Francisco.
