Tara Matise

Professor and Chair
Genetics, School of Arts and Sciences

I am Professor and Chair of Genetics. I have been at Rutgers since 2000, following a postdoc at Rockefeller University, NYC, a postdoc at Columbia University, NYC, graduate school at the University of Pittsburgh, and undergrad at Cornell University, Ithaca, NY. For many years, my career focused on the development and application of computational genetics resources to aid in the identification of human disease genes. Recently, my focus has shifted away from investigator-initiated research to management of large-scale genetics studies. I am currently PI of the coordinating center for two NHGRI-funded multi-site studies: PAGE and GSP.
In the spring I teach 447:302 Quantitative Biology and Bioinformatics. I became Chair of the department in July 2018.
