Department of Medicine and the College

Sebastian Pott is a genome scientist whose research aims to understand gene regulatory processes that drive normal development and, when dysregulated, cause diseases. His 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 powerful tools for genetic perturbation.

Pott’s research has been published in Developmental Cell, eLife, Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, Nature Communications, Genetics, Mammalian Genome, Environmental Health Perspectives, Nature Genetics, Cell, PLOS One, Genes & Development, Immunity, and Cellular Microbiology.

Pott received an MS in biochemistry from the University of Hannover, Germany, and a PhD in medical sciences from Karolinska Institute, Stockholm. He completed postdoctoral fellowships at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and Princeton University.
