The Maurano lab develops genomic approaches to gene regulation and studies their application to common human diseases

We are affiliated with the NYU Department of Pathology, and are part of the Institute for Systems Genetics, which hosts high-throughput sequencing, robotics, high-performance computing, and megabase-scale DNA synthesis facilities.

We have open staff and postdoc positions! Candidates should contact Matt Maurano at
