Career Opportunities in the Biomedical Informatics Group

Our interdisciplinary research group develops and applies advanced methodology to mine large volumes of molecular and clinical data to understand and model mechanisms of molecular processes, diseases and treatment options.

Currently, this includes:

a) analyzing large cancer genomics data sets for new cancer-specific isoforms and mutations that influence RNA splicing,
b) developing methodology for summarizing electronic health records and model patient's health status,
c) performing association studies to connect molecular and clinical phenotypes with mutations.
