Kevin Bloh, M.S.

Ph.D. Candidate

B.S. Elizabethtown College
M.S. Drexel University College of Medicine

Kevin Bloh is a third-year graduate student at the University of Delaware with research interests in bioinformatic analysis of DNA repair mechanisms utilized during CRISPR-mediated gene editing. His current focus is on elucidating CRISPR repair outcomes due to homology-directed repair and microhomology-mediated end joining within the In Vitro Gene Editing System.  He has also worked in the development of DECODR, a freely-accessible web app that aids in the deconvolution of gene edited Sanger sequencing files.

He received his B.S. from Elizabethtown College in 2013, where he worked on elucidating the effects of SV40 large Tumor Antigen and p53 on preadipocyte cell differentiation. He earned his M.S. from Drexel University College of Medicine in 2014, where he researched the effects progression of HIV-1 infection has on viral cofactor affinity.
