Welcome to the Macosko Lab!

Nervous system biology through innovative genomics

The brain is composed of a remarkably diverse set of cells, many of whose functions have only begun to be explored.  The Macosko Lab develops new genomics technologies to identify these novel populations, characterize their roles within normal circuitry, and understand how they contribute to disease states in pathological contexts.

We’re situated in the Stanley Center for Psychiatric Research at the Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard.
