Elaine Lim is a post-doctoral fellow at the Wyss Institute for Biologically Inspired Engineering and Harvard Medical School. She received her B.S. in Computer Science and M.S. in Bioinformatics from the National University of Singapore, and Ph.D. in Genetics and Genomics from Harvard University. She seeks to understand the genetic causes of autism, through the discovery of novel risk loci coupled with in-vitro screens to elucidate causal mechanisms.
