Scott A. Noggle, PhD is the Senior Vice President for Research at the New York Stem Cell Foundation. He was a postdoctoral fellow at The Rockefeller University studying developmental neurobiology and stem cell biology. He received his PhD in Molecular Medicine from the Medical College of Georgia.
He has a long-standing interest in the derivation and use of human stem cells to understand human development and disease. Current work in his lab is aimed at applying new advances in pluripotent stem cell biology and cell reprogramming to the creation of human models of neurodegenerative diseases, such as Alzheimer’s disease and Parkinson's disease to discover new disease targets. To make all of this possible, he also directs a group at NYSCF developing large-scale automated systems that use stem cells as a tool to understand how our genetics impacts susceptibility to these diseases. He and his team have developed high throughput automated systems for deriving new stem cell lines and differentiated cells to study disease models from large numbers of patients in parallel.
