Dr. Marlon Stoeckius is a senior research scientist in the NYGC’s technology innovation lab, a multidisciplinary research team, comprised of molecular biologists, engineers and chemists, seeking to advance a variety of next-generation sequencing techniques. His major focus is the development of experimental methods to obtain multimodal information from single cells. Prior to joining NYGC, he worked as postdoctoral researcher at Yale University studying gene expression regulation in early embryogenesis. He performed his graduate research in the lab of Nikolaus Rajewsky at the Max-Delbrueck-Center for Molecular Medicine Berlin, characterizing the oocyte-to-embryo transition in C. elegans. Being part of an international MDC-NYU PhD exchange program, he did stints of his PhD research in the lab of Fabio Piano at New York University. He received his PhD in molecular biology from the Humboldt University Berlin, and his MA in biomedical sciences from the University of Applied Sciences Bonn, Germany.
