Nitzan Rosenfeld

As an undergrad I studied physics at the Technion. I joined Uri Alon’s Systems Biology lab at the Weizmann Institute of Science, exploring gene regulation and variation in single living cells.

After a short interlude at the Institute for Advanced Studies (Princeton, NJ), I joined Rosetta Genomics, a biotech company specialising in microRNA. I led the Computational Biology team, designing diagnostic algorithms and clinical assays for cancer classification.

In 2009 I moved to the UK, to set up the Molecular and Computational Diagnostics Lab at the Cancer Research UK Cambridge Institute. In 2014, my colleagues and I founded Inivata, a clinical cancer genomics company focusing on applications of ctDNA.

I live in Cambridge with my wife and two sons. Between science and family I enjoy cycling, home cooking, music and Ashtanga yoga. Now if only we had some mountains nearby…!
