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
Rahul Satija, PhD, is a Core Faculty Member at the New York Genome Center (NYGC), with a joint appointment as Associate Professor at the Center for Genomics and Systems Biology at New York University (NYU). Prior to joining the NYGC, Dr. Satija was a postdoctoral researcher at the Broad Institute of Harvard and MIT, where he developed new methods for single cell analysis. The Satija Lab focuses on developing computational and experimental methods to sequence and interpret the molecular contents of a single cell. His Lab 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 is a recipient of the NIH New Innovator Award, and in 2020 was selected to direct an NIH Center for Excellence in Genomic Science. Dr. Satija holds a BS degree in Biology and Music from Duke University, and obtained his PhD in Statistics from Oxford University as a Rhodes Scholar.
