Brandon earned his Bachelors of Science in Cell and Molecular Biology at San Francisco State University. After graduating from SFSU, he joined the UCSF Division of Experimental Medicine, where he worked on developing novel in situ hybridization techniques and applying them to study HIV and tuberculosis. It was at UCSF where his passion for immunology and technology began. Brandon now joins Retro’s partial reprogramming program, to develop therapies to counter age-associated functional decline in the immune system. In his free time, Brandon enjoys oil painting, playing competitive chess, and going to sports-stadium games.
