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

January 2022
A paper co-first authored by former lab member Nick Vulpescu on finding target genes of GWAS loci has been accepted at Human Genetics. Nick is now doing a PhD in the Velculescu lab at JHU. A second paper, Analysis of genomic context sensitivity, by Andre, Megan, Raven, and Ran has been accepted for publication in Genome Research.
