Toby Aicher is a research technician in the Shalek and the Walker labs who uses single-cell RNA-sequencing to investigate how the immune system responds to acute HIV infection in elite controllers and chronic progressors. His interests include developmental trajectories of lymphocytes, functional heterogeneity among cytotoxic T-cells, and epigenomics.  
Toby grew up in Maine and attended college in Vermont. He has a B.A. in Molecular Biology and Biochemistry from Middlebury College. In his free time Toby likes swimming, amateur astronomy, and exploring Boston.
