Jaehyuk Choi, PhD, MD
Dr. Jaehyuk Choi is an Associate Professor of Dermatology and of Biochemistry and Molecular Genetics at Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine. He received his A.B. in Biochemical Sciences from Harvard, and his M.D. and Ph.D. degrees from Yale. He was a dermatology resident and a post-doctoral fellow in genetics at Yale. Since graduating from medical school, Dr. Choi is the recipient of the NIH New Innovator Award, the Damon Runyon Clinical Investigator Award, the Doris Duke Clinician Scientist Development Award, and is a recent inductee into the American Society for Clinical Investigation. Dr. Choi is a clinically active physician-scientist with a clinical and scientific focus on T cell lymphomas. His research group is interested in bench-to-bedside approaches to improve clinical care for patients with these diseases. To do so, he investigates the genetic mechanisms that underlie disease pathogenesis. This approach provides important clues as to what makes each patient unique and how to improve treatments for patients.
