About Evan Boyle
MS Medicine ’19, PhD Genetics ’19
Evan is a molecular biologist from Western Washington. His research synthesizes insight from biophysics, applied math, and human genetics to answer fundamental questions about the molecular building blocks of life.
During his PhD at Stanford, Evan studied how genetic variation can influence both molecular and human traits and posited an ‘omnigenic’ model for complex traits whereby disruption of any gene has the potential to contribute risk for diseases like diabetes and schizophrenia. He currently works in Gene Yeo’s lab at UC San Diego on RNA-binding protein biology.
Outside of the lab, Evan directs two initiatives: the Diversity and Science Lecture series (DASL) for junior life scientists and the Queer Science Society for queer, trans, and allied scholars in San Diego. He is passionate about the importance of an inclusive climate for realizing future advances in STEM.
