Noam Kaplan

Dr. Noam Kaplan is a new faculty member at the Technion Faculty of Medicine, returning from a postdoctoral position at the University of Massachusetts Medical School. He studies the physical structure of the genome, which is closely linked to genome function in both healthy and disease processes. By combining advanced computational methods with genomic experimentation, Dr. Kaplan's lab will try to decipher how the genome encodes its three-dimensional organization and how this organization mediates biological function in a range of biological systems. By developing quantitative models and testing them experimentally, he aims to go beyond descriptive genomics and gain mechanistic insights into the underlying principles of genome structure and function.
