The Columbia University Department of Systems Biology brings together researchers specializing in computational biology, experimental biology, and technology development to discover how biological traits emerge from complex molecular networks.
Systems biology and computational biology are becoming increasingly important disciplines in the biological sciences. Through PhD graduate education and postdoctoral training we prepare young scientists to become leaders in this exciting and rapidly growing field.
Andrea Califano, Dr, President, Chan Zuckerberg Biohub; Clyde and Helen Wu Professor of Chemical and Systems Biology, Columbia University, New York, New York
Elected for pioneering research efforts in systems biology dedicated to developing methods that combine computational biology and cancer pharmacology approaches to model cancer cell regulatory networks, and for developing the first genome-wide regulatory model of human cells and novel network-based approach for identifying master regulators of cancer maintenance and tumor progression.
Mohammed AlQuraishi of Columbia University received 200,000 node-hours on Polaris to develop OpenFold-powered machine learning of protein-protein interactions and complexes.
