Event description

Description

Come out to hear professionals in BioInformatics and AI discuss their careers paths. The event will be an Industry panel followed by Q&A. Lots of Snacks! Free registration!

Guests speakers include:

Tom Leung, PhD, BenchSci CSO and Co-founder

Tom completed his MSc in Virology and PhD in Epigenetics at the University of Toronto. For his PhD thesis, he investigated the molecular mechanism of repressive genetic bookmarking during cellular division and the potential application of reversing these bookmarks as alternative cancer therapeutic approaches.

Professor Hannes Rost, PhD, Assistant Professor, University of Toronto

Hannes Röst obtained a BSc in Biochemistry and a MSc in Bioinformatics from ETH Zurich, and during his PhD in the lab of Prof. Ruedi Aebersold at ETH Zurich, he developed novel computational methods to analyze mass spectrometry-based proteomics data. This work has allowed researchers to increase throughput of targeted proteomics experiments by up to 100-fold and increase the number of samples that could be analyzed in a single study. After his PhD, he joined the lab of Prof. Mike Snyder at Stanford University to apply his work in the area of personalized medicine. In Stanford, Hannes focused on developing computational tools for handling, managing and analyzing large, heterogeneous and longitudinal datasets. His research at University of Toronto explore the capability novel mass spectrometric methods to obtain highly quantitative proteomics and metabolomics data matrices and use these quantitative data to address questions in systems biology and personalized medicine.

Arun Ramani, PhD, Bioinformatics Team Lead, SickKids Centre for Computational Medicine

Arun’s curious nature to understand how and why things work has propelled him to a career in research. He holds a PhD in Cellular and Molecular Biology, and joined the CCM team in 2014 to apply his skills in biology with computation and statistics. He is currently developing bioinformatic pipelines to tackle large data sets to gain biological insights.
