Rahul Satija’s lab studies the causes and consequences of cellular heterogeneity in complex biological systems. His group is particularly interested in single cell genomics, with active development in both the dry and wet lab. The lab integrates novel statistical and machine learning-based methods with experimental analysis in order to better understand how cells work together to drive biological processes and behaviors.
Rahul Satija, PhD, is a Core Member and Assistant Investigator at the New York Genome Center, with a joint appointment as Assistant Professor at Center for Genomics and Systems Biology at NYU.
Dr. Satija’s group focuses on developing computational and experimental methods to sequence and interpret the molecular contents of a single cell. His group applies single cell genomics to understand the causes and consequences of cell-to-cell variation, with a particular focus on immune regulation and early development.
Dr. Satija holds a BS in Biology and Music from Duke University, and obtained his PhD in Statistics from Oxford University as a Rhodes Scholar. Prior to joining NYGC, he was a postdoctoral researcher at the Broad Institute of Harvard and MIT, where he developed new methods for single cell analysis.
