Zack started working at the Allen Institute for Brain Science in 2024 as a Scientist 3 in the Molecular Genetics group. His focus is on characterizing cells in the peripheral nervous system with single-cell analytic approaches.

Prior to joining the Allen Institute, Zack was a Senior Scientist at NanoString Technologies where he created high-plex spatial proteomic assays and analytic solutions. Before NanoString, Zack was a Postdoctoral Associate and Lecturer in Ecology and Evolutionary Biology at Yale University, where he worked on the genomics and physiology of marine invertebrates and taught comparative physiology and comparative anatomy. Zack received his PhD in Organismic and Evolutionary Biology from Harvard University. His PhD explored the developmental and evolutionary origins of lunglessness in salamanders and the physiological consequences of living without lungs.
