About Us

We are a computational science oriented group, affiliated with the institute of precision medicine and the institute of computational biomedicine.
We are passionate about developing new algorithms and applications of computational methods to genomics.

The lab is located in Upper East Side of Manhattan. The Weill Cornell Medical College is in close proximity to Rockefeller University and Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, which offers a unique opportunity for scientific collaborations. Columbia University, NY Genome Center, Cornell-Tech and Google campuses are also within a very short commute. New York City (aka The City That Never Sleeps) is one the most exciting cities in the world and offers so much!
