Aaron Newman

Our lab builds novel data science tools to better understand the cellular and molecular composition of normal and neoplastic tissues. We are using these tools, together with high throughput sequencing, single cell genomics, and experimental techniques, to study the diversity and clinical significance of (i) cancer cell subtypes involved in tumor initiation, maintenance, and metastasis, and (ii) stromal cell subsets in the tumor microenvironment.
