Carl E. McIntosh
National Cancer Institute at Frederick 
Building 560:21-23  
Frederick, MD 21702-1201 U.S.A.

Hours: Office Hours


Carl McIntosh earned his B.A. degree from the Department of Zoology at the University of Hawaii. He spent the next 14 years at the Smithsonian National Zoological Park's Genetics Laboratory as a research technician and laboratory manager.

In the Fall of 2005, he joined National Cancer Institute in Frederick Maryland as a Bioinformatics Programmer / Analyst. He has participated on 3 Genome-Wide Association Studies (GWAS): HIV, NPC and HBV. Presently, he is assisting with a project to characterize DNA methylation patterns and its role in cancer. He is involved with several next-generation sequencing projects.

This Fall 2013, Carl has completed a M.S degree in Computer Science at Hood College. His coursework and interests are in Bioinformatics, High-preformance computing and advanced programming techniques.
