Julian Halmai received his Master’s Degree in Biomedical Sciences from the University of Groningen in the Netherlands. He trained in the lab of Dr. David Segal, a pioneer in gene editing at UC Davis. Dr. Halmai continued his doctoral training at UCD in the lab of Dr. Kyle Fink at the Institute for Regenerative Cures. During his PhD research, Dr. Halmai’s research has demonstrated a paradigm shift in the field of X-linked disorders, demonstrating that a gene on the inactive X chromosome can be reactivated in female cells.
