Boyer, an extramural KI member, is a biochemist who develops high-throughput platforms for genome analysis. The granting of tenure to these three by MIT is a testament to the quality of their research and teaching. On June 13, Boyer and Anderson will speak at the KI’s annual summer symposium, "RNA Biology, Cancer, and Therapeutic Implications."
