Dr. Marco Seandel is an Assistant Professor of Cell and Developmental Biology in Surgery at Weill Cornell Medical College.  Dr. Seandel received his MD/PhD from the State University of New York at Stony Brook, completed his internal medicine residency at New York-Presbyterian/Weill Cornell Medical Center and his medical oncology fellowship at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center. His lab is keenly interested in the mechanisms by which monogenic and complex disorders become increasingly prevalent in children as a function of the father’s age at the time of conception.
