Dr. Rodriguez graduated from MIT in 2001 and worked for six years performing bioinformatics analysis including human genome assembly. In 2007, he began work under the direction of Michael Rosbash, Ph.D., at Brandeis University, studying RNA processing and circadian gene expression dynamics. After receiving his doctorate in 2012, Dr. Rodriguez joined the laboratory of Daniel Larson, Ph.D., at the National Cancer Institute and studied transcriptional regulation of estrogen responsive genes in single human cells. He joined the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences in 2018 and leads the Single Cell Dynamics group. His group studies how the environment influences expression variability at the single cell level and subsequently how this variability influences cell fate decisions.
