Director, Single Cell Core

Erin Bush is a Senior Staff Associate in the Sims and Califano labs, where she is helping to develop new Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) techniques, focusing on low input and single cell DNA and RNA library preparation and sequencing. She is also an Associate Director at the JP Sulzberger Columbia Genome Center.

Before joining Columbia in 2011, her research involved studying transcriptional regulation in Plasmodium falciparum and later methylation patterns in acute myeloid leukemia. She graduated from Princeton University in 2009 with a Bachelor's degree in Molecular Biology. She completed her Master's degree in Biotechnology at Columbia in 2015.
