Rory Cunningham, PhD

Pre-Clinical Scientist 

Rory is a Preclinical Scientist at Ochre Bio’s New York based lab, where he focuses on deep phenotyping perfused human livers. A physiologist by training, Rory’s PhD research involved identifying key proteins involved in nonalcoholic fatty liver disease development. This led him to a postdoc at the National Cancer Institute, studying how hepatic mitochondrial dynamics are perturbed during the onset of liver disease. Rory originally hails from Galway in Ireland, before coming to the US for graduate school in 2014 to complete his MS at Central Michigan University, and PhD at the University of Missouri.
