Wyss Intitute for Biologically Inspired Engineering
Ninning Liu is a staff scientist in the Molecular Robotics Initiative where his focus is on engineering DNA-based tools for spatial-omics, biosensing, and high-throughput barcoding. His current interests include working at the interface between imaging and sequencing technologies, applied ML, and exploring application areas of translational technologies at the Wyss. Ninning received his Ph.D. at Berkeley in Molecular and Cellular Biology in single-molecule assays of DNA molecular motors. He then did his postdoctoral fellowship at HMS in Peng Yin’s group where he developed a nanoscale labeling strategy with light, Action-PAINT, and was a co-inventor of Light-Seq, a light-directed spatial-omic technology platform.
