Faculty Profile

Sebastian Pott
Section of Genetic Medicine
Assistant Professor of Medicine

Academic Interests

Dr. Pott is a genome scientist whose research aims to elucidate gene regulatory mechanisms in human cells and to understand how their disruption contributes to diseases. Dr. Pott’s projects combine the development and application of cutting-edge single-cell and single-molecule genomic technologies, a range of experimental systems, including intestinal organoids and induced pluripotent stem cells, and powerful tools for genetic perturbation to understand gene regulatory processes that drive normal development and, when dysregulated, cause diseases.
