Pancho (as Francisco’s are called in Chile) received his undergraduate degree in Biochemistry in the Pontificia Universidad Católica in Santiago de Chile. For his PhD, Pancho moved to the IRB Barcelona in Spain to work under the supervision of Eduard Batlle, where he studied intestinal stem cell heterogeneity and the role of the stem cell phenotype in colorectal cancer. In Scott’s lab, he has developed novel genome engineering approaches to dissect the functional contribution of copy number alterations to cancer, particularly focusing on their role in tumor immune evasion. Beyond working and discussing science in the lab (or at the bar with IPAs), Pancho is a big fan of dogs, cycling, basketball, and baking bread.
