Christopher Lausted is a Senior Research Engineer at the Institute for Systems Biology (ISB) working on multi-omic instrumentation and data analysis. He joined University of Washington’s Department of Molecular Biotechnology in 1999 to develop DNA microarray technologies and moved to ISB with its founding in 2000. He has designed and constructed novel microarray instruments including inkjet DNA synthesizers, fluorescence waveguide scanners, and label-free surface-plasmon resonance (SPR) imagers. His research interests include single-cell, multi-omic analysis of complex diseases like metastatic cancer and macrocytic anemia. More recently, he has been working on collecting and integrating deep-phenotyping datasets to characterize normal human variation and the transitions that occur with acute and chronic COVID-19.
