Shaun Peterson, Ph.D.


Dr. Peterson is an accomplished molecular biologist who, prior to joining the team at Rumi, has made discoveries related to the mechanism of DNA repair and genome stability. As a core member of our scientific team, he is implementing our research programs and driving innovation for future projects. A lifelong New Yorker, he has studied at Columbia University and continued his postdoctoral training at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center under the mentorship of Dr. Maria Jasin.

I would like to learn about Rumi Viro’s novel discoveries to treat genetic diseases.
