Noam Shoresh, Ph.D.
Associate Director of the Epigenomics Program; Member of the Infectious Disease and Microbiome Program; Institute Scientist
Noam Shoresh is associate director of the Epigenomics Program at the Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard, where he is an institute scientist. At the Broad, he leads the computational arm of the epigenomics production team and is responsible for the continuous processing and delivery of high-quality ChIP-seq data. He also oversees the preparation and submission of data to several key consortia efforts, such as the ENCODE consortium and NIH’s Roadmap Epigenomics project. Shoresh’s team also provides computational support and guidance for data analysis in the Hung lab and the Infectious Disease and Microbiome Program.
Since he joined the Broad institute in 2008, Shoresh has developed with his group a software infrastructure that is the basis of the group’s operations. He develops computational analysis methods that are incorporated in their pipeline, designs and writes code, and leads or advises the analysis for multiple projects that use the data.
Shoresh earned his Ph.D. in theoretical particle physics from the University of Washington, Seattle. He completed postdoctoral work in the Department of Systems Biology at Harvard Medical School and in the Bauer Center for Genomics Research at Harvard University.
