Andre Marziali

Andre Marziali, P.Eng., is the director of the Engineering Physics program at the University of British Columbia (UBC) and founder and chief scientific officer of Boreal Genomics. Marziali co-invented the concept of using synchronous mobility perturbations to create divergent velocity fields for selective focusing of nucleic acids, the technology which forms the basis for Boreal Genomics’s platforms. Today, Boreal Genomics continues to develop breakthrough technology for non-invasive, real-time detection and monitoring of tumor mutations.

Marziali received his Bachelor of Applied Science in engineering physics from UBC and his PhD in physics from Stanford University.

Marziali is Co-Director, Technology Development of Genome British Columbia and recipient of multiple awards including: the BC Innovation Council Young Innovator award (2004); the Association for Lab Automation Innovation Award (2007); and the Life Science BC Award for Innovation and Achievement (2011).
