Adam Marsh, Ph.D., is a faculty member in the School of Marine Science and Policy with an appointment in UD’s Center for Bioinformatics and Computational Biology. His primary research efforts initially focused on epigenetics of environmental imprinting in animals living in extreme environments (polar seas, deep oceans) which lead to the development of a novel and robust software platform for quantifying and profiling DNA methylation from NGS data.
Dr. Marsh recently co-founded Genome Profiling LLC where he serves as CSO to oversee the application of this platform to help researchers and clinicians discover epigenetic biomarkers for predicting, diagnosing and improving therapeutic efficacy for patients with chronic and life threatening diseases.
Dr. Marsh received his Ph.D. from the University of Maryland, College Park, and pursued postdoctoral research in cell biology (Univ. New Hampshire, Durham), molecular biology and invertebrate immunology (Center of Marine Biotechnology, Univ. Maryland, Baltimore), and molecular physiology (Univ. Southern California, Los Angeles). Across all phases of his career computer programming, biostatistics and big-data have played a large role in defining his research vision and goals.
