Dr. Teresa Przytycka

Teresa Przytycka, PhD, senior investigator in the Computational Biology Department of the Nationwide Library of Medicine’s (NLM’s) Nationwide Heart for Biotechnology Information and facts, has been picked as a 2021 Fellow of the Global Modern society for Computational Biology (ISCB).

ICSB regarded Dr. Przytycka for her basic algorithmic contributions to a large assortment of issues in computational devices biology, primarily in network evaluation, network-primarily based methods to uncover disease genes, network reconstruction, regulatory roles of DNA conformation dynamics and RNA aptamer evaluation. 

“Dr. Przytycka’s study has accelerated development in numerous areas of biomedical science,” stated NLM Director Patricia Flatley Brennan, RN, PhD. “We are extremely very pleased of this recognition of her exceptional get the job done and her contributions to the fields of computational biology and bioinformatics.”

An eighteen-year veteran of NLM, Dr. Przytycka qualified prospects the Algorithms for Computational and Techniques Biology (AlgoCSB) study team, which develops computational solutions that advance devices-stage comprehension of cancer and other sophisticated disorders, and the rules of gene regulation.

The Nationwide Library of Medicine (NLM) is a leader in study in biomedical informatics and details science and the world’s largest biomedical library. NLM conducts and supports study in solutions for recording, storing, retrieving, preserving, and communicating health and fitness facts. NLM results in assets and applications that are utilised billions of occasions each and every year by hundreds of thousands of persons to obtain and assess molecular biology, biotechnology, toxicology, environmental health and fitness, and health and fitness providers facts.
