Justin Eyquem, PhD, MS, BS

Principal Investigator
Parker Fellow
Microbiology and Immunology

I received my PhD from the University of Paris-Diderot in collaboration with the biotech company Cellectis. During my PhD, I participated to the development of gene editing tools such as Meganuclease or TALEN in primary human cells and notably identified genomic location for safe integration of therapeutic genes. In 2014, I joined Michel Sadelain’s lab at the MSKCC and used CRISPR/Cas9 to engineer CAR T cells. I showed how targeting CAR transgene into specific loci enhance T cell efficacy, advance CAR immuno-biology and facilitate T cell manufacturing.

William Nyberg, PhD

Postdoctoral Scholar

My name is William Nyberg and before moving to San Francisco I did my PhD at the Karolinska Institute in Stockholm, Sweden. I started my postdoc in the Eyquem lab in August 2019. As a postdoc my focus is on developing CAR T cells targeting solid tumors as well as establishing efficient knock-in platforms for multiple immune cell types using AAVs. I’m a huge football fan (both the American and the European version) and I love to travel and explore new places.
