Students enrolled in one of following Weill Cornell graduate programs can contact the PI to apply for rotations in the lab:
- The Tri-I Training Program in Computational Biology and Medicine
- The Tri-Institutional MD-PhD Program
- The Physiology, Biophysics and Systems Biology PhD Program
Other students interested in joining the laboratory are encouraged to apply to these programs and mention the laboratory in their application package.
We have a number of ongoing projects to which rotation students can contribute. Example of current projects include:
- Development of efficient, fully parallel methods to reliably identify sequence variants that differ across groups of samples in NGS data.
- Development of a pipeline to analyze RRBS data (NGS protocol to measure DNA methylation at the base level) in single samples and differences between groups of samples
- Analyze NGS small RNA and messenger RNA data from kidney transplant biopsies to help design a non-invasive diagnostic.
- Study relevant animal models of Late Onset Alzheimer’s disease with NGS methods to elucidate mechanisms of neurodegeneration.
We are working on many projects concurrently, so there is always an interesting rotation project available if you are interested in working in the lab. We are more likely to accept rotation students when we have funding for one student to continue working on the project for his/her thesis, as is currently the case.
