What we do

With the advent of high-throughput technologies and clinical information systems, the life sciences and clinical sciences now produce very large amounts of data (big data). Our goal is to uncover hidden patterns in these data, as well as build data-driven models as tools to discover biomarkers and assist clinicians in their decisions. Our projects encompass the fields of transcriptomics, systems biology, and clinical bioinformatics & analytics.
