About Dr. Navin

Dr. Nicholas Navin is an associate professor at the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center. He is known as 'the father of single cell sequencing' for having pioneered the development of the first single cell sequencing methods for DNA. Navin holds a dual appointment in the University's Department of Genetics and Department of Bioinformatics, and serves as a scientific advisor to the biotechnology company ZS Genetics.[3] Navin's work focuses on single cell sequencing, oncogenomics, bioinformatics and the genome evolution in cancer. His laboratory at M.D. Anderson Cancer Center has pioneered the development of single cell sequencing technologies and applies those tools to study complex biological processes that occur in human cancers including transformation, clonal evolution, invasion, metastasis and chemoresistance evolution. Dr. Navin has received numerous awards for his works. He is widely published and recognized internationally for his work. Dr. Navin received his undergraduate degree in cell biology from Skidmore College and his PhD in molecular genetics from Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory and Stony Brook University.
