Margaret RoyMargaret Roy Head of Genomic Sequencing

Research Focus

At Calico I am working to create a world-class Genomics Core outfitted with the latest in nucleic acid technology. The Core is collaborating with fellow Calico scientists to use these advanced technologies in understanding the biology that controls healthspan and lifespan.

I have a long history of developing nucleic acid assays as well as the analytical instrumentation on which the assays are performed. Prior to early 2014, when I joined Calico, I worked on the development of DNA sequencing platforms at Complete Genomics (2010-2014) and on a Non-invasive Prenatal Diagnostics (NIPD) assay for Trisomy 21 at Sequenom (2008-2010).
