Dressman to lead Duke’s Sequencing and Genomics Technologies Core

We are pleased to announce that Holly Dressman, PhD, has been named director of Duke’s Sequencing and Genomic Technologies (SGT) Core Facility, effective immediately. Nicolas Devos, PhD, has stepped down from his role as SGT director after leading the core since 2016.

Dr. Dressman is a Research Professor of Molecular Genetics and Microbiology and has been on the School of Medicine faculty since 2001. She also serves as director of the Microbiome Core Facility and will continue to lead that facility. Her expertise and institutional knowledge will facilitate a seamless leadership transition and will ensure that the SGT Core Facility continues to provide start-to-finish project support for Duke researchers, including consultation and planning services for all research projects involving genomics and microbial systems. 

Please join us in congratulating Dr. Dressman on her new appointment.

We would also like to thank Dr. Devos for his leadership of SGT. He has been instrumental in modernizing operations, increasing the portfolio of the core, and lowering operational costs. During the past nineteen months, he and the SGT team have played an integral role in providing sequencing efforts in support of Duke’s COVID-19 research. We wish him the best of luck in his new position at Sana Biotechnology.
