Nicola Neretti

Nicola Neretti, PhD, is Associate Professor in the Department of Molecular Biology, Cell Biology, and Biochemistry at Brown University. Nicola's research combines genomics and computational biology to study the biology of aging and age-associated diseases.

Dr. Neretti has been working on interdisciplinary projects which involve signal/image processing, and modeling of biological systems. His current focus is the application of high throughput techniques such as RNA-seq to study changes in the transcriptional network caused by genetic and environmental interventions that extend life span in model organisms. His most recent work includes the development of computational methods to detect age-associated chromatin changes and activation of transposable elements.
