Welcome to the Sims Lab at Columbia University!
Our group develops new tools for single cell and cell type-specific analysis, focusing mainly on transcriptomics, translatomics, and proteomics. We apply cutting-edge microscopy, next-generation sequencing, and microfabrication to enable unbiased, genome-wide measurements in heterogeneous biological systems.
We are located on the 10th floor of the Irving Cancer Research Center at Columbia University Medical Center in New York City.
