Eli did his postdoc in Garry Nolan’s lab at Stanford University. There, he developed a cell barcoding method for mass cytometry that he used to study kinase inhibitor specificity across the human immune system, developed a graph-based mapping algorithm to track iPS cell reprogramming and identify early reprogramming intermediates, and applied these generalizable methods to map AML patient samples by prognosis and organism-level organization of the mouse immune system.
