About Bryce Carey

Bryce Carey, PhD, received his BS in Cell Biology from the University of California, Davis, and his PhD in Biology from MIT. As a graduate student, Bryce conducted research at Whitehead Institute under the world-renowned stem cell biologist Rudolf Jaenish. Bryce focused his efforts on induced pluripotent stem (iPS) cells, which offer enormous promise for personalized medicine and the treatment of human disease. His thesis research offered insights into the reprogramming process and he discovered novel approaches to isolate iPS cells that are functionally indistinguishable from embryonic stem (ES) cells.

Most recently, Bryce has transitioned into the role of Postdoctoral Associate at Rockefeller University in NY with C. David Allis, where he is applying his fundamental knowledge from the Whitehead Institute to the exploration of histone biochemistry and chromatin regulation in stem cells.
